Applications are made online via the project website. This is also where you will find the academic offering of each participating university and its specific application requirements. Online applications can be submitted between 1st October 2015 and 1st March 2016. This means that the deadline for applications is the 1st March 2016. You will be informed about the decision of the selection committee in May. In principle, you may submit your PUEDES application in either English or Spanish, but please observe possible language requirements of the universities you are applying for. You may indicate up to three preferred host universities.
PLEASE NOTE: The application deadline was extended until March 6th.
Since the funding is very attractive, we strongly recommend applying if you are interested in a study abroad period in Latin America. However, as an undergraduate or graduate student you should not only rely on PUEDES, but also apply for an exchange semester under Viadrina’s regular study abroad programme. The application deadline in this case is December 3rd 2015. In case you are accepted for both programmes, you can either go abroad with PUEDES during the winter semester 2016/17 and again during the summer semester 2017 with our regular programme, or you can renounce your place in the regular programme in order to receive the PUEDES scholarship. It is possible to receive funding from PUEDES (Erasmus Mundus Action 2) during one semester and from the Erasmus+ programme during the next.
