On both occasions, the Partners met to select scholars for undergraduate, master, doctoral and post-doctoral students and staff level mobilities. The aim of the scholarships are to better adapt the Syrian, Jordan, Palestinian and Lebanese institutions (EPIC) and the Moroccan, Egyptian, Tunisian, Algerian and Libyan universities (EU-METALIC) to national developmental needs in order to respond to globalisation challenges. Both selection committees made the final selection of EPIC and EU-METALIC scholarships in line with the criteria of academic merit and the cross-cutting requirements of equal opportunities, gender-balance and real participation of socio-economically disadvantaged people.

Notifications will be sent out by the end of April 2013.

After successful candidates have confirmed acceptance of their scholarships, numbers will be reviewed. If there are places available we will look to offer places to reserve list candidates based on a number of different factors around the original assessments of the applications. Any successful reserve list candidates will be notified of any changes in their application in due course. Please visit our EPIC Facebook and EU-METALIC Facebook pages for any updates.
