Description of Ideal Candidate:



  • BSc.- or equivalent in the field of materials science and engineering, physics, chemistry or other materials science or engineering related studies (3 year minimum study period). You can apply even if you will not have finished your studies within our application deadline. In this case, you must submit an official document stating that you are a currently enrolled student and participating in your last year of studies.

Cost/funding for participants:

Applications received before the deadline defined in following link will automatically be considered for EM scholarships. After this deadlines, the application cannot be considered for the EM scholarships. The following table shows the amount of scholarship for both Programme and Partner country students:



*Installation costs are only paid to students resident in a Partner Country.

**Travel costs depend on the residence of the student and are paid in two annual rates:

  • 2.000 EUR: the student’s residence is in one of the programme countries of Erasmus+.
  • 4.000 EUR: the student’s residence is in a Partner country less than 4.000 km from the coordinating university (Saarbrücken, Germany).
  • 6.000 EUR: the student’s residence is in a Partner country 4.000 km or more from the coordinating university (Saarbrücken, Germany).

*** Participation costs for Programme Country students are 6.000 €, for Partner Country students 18.000 €.

During the regular study period of 2 years, these costs are covered by the Erasmus+ scholarship and will be directly transferred to the coordinators. The students have to cover the participation costs for all additional semesters themselves.

Partner Country Student: Students who are not residents nor have carried out their main activity (studies, training or work) for more than a total of 12 months over the last five years in a Programme Country. The five-year reference period for this 12-month rule is calculated backwards as from the submission deadline defined by the consortia.

Programme Countris: Member States of the European Union (EU), Republic of North Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, and Serbia.


This is a regular Erasmus+ funding, which all students in Europe are eligible for by studying in another European country.

Although Erasmus+ is not equal to a full-scholarship, it is a mobility allowance which will help you cover your costs abroad. The amount depends on each country and varies between 250 – 350€ a month.

You may receive funding for your second year in AMASE, so the time you study at your Second University. In order to be eligible for said funding, you will have to apply for Erasmus+ at your Entrance University during the first year. Please contact the respective international office for more detailed information.

!! For the moment, Erasmus+ is not available if UPC or LTU is your Entrance university !!


If you study in any combination of UL/UdS, you will be eligible for funding via the “Deutsch-Französische Hochschule” (DFH). Funding amounts to 300€ per month for a maximum duration of 10 months, during your stay at the second university.

An example: You study at UdS for your first year. You cannot get DFH funding during this first year. Then, you move to UL for the second year. Now you receive DFH funding over 300€ per month (max. 10 months). The same works vice versa.
