CIHEAM grants a limited number of scholarships to candidates from CIHEAM-member Mediterranean countries (Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey) covering registration fees. These candidates may likewise apply for scholarships covering all or part of their travel, board and lodging expenses in the hall of residence on campus, as well as the medical and accident insurance valid for the duration of the course.

The participants of other nationalities, who wish to obtain financial aid, should apply directly to other national or international institutions.

Nevertheless, in some of the courses jointly organized with other institutions, scholarships may be awarded for candidates of some non-CIHEAM member countries. It is advisable to consult the corresponding scholarship section in the information specifically provided for each course programmed.

The Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), attached to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Spain, offers scholarships to candidates from other countries wishing to complete their education in Spain. To obtain information about these scholarships, you must consult the web site http://www.aecid.es/EN/grants-and-assistantships (where you may also submit your application directly), or contact the Embassy of Spain in your country or the nearest Consulate Office. The call for applications usually opens at the beginning of December and the deadline is at the end of December or the beginning of January. Applicants must prove knowledge of Spanish and present a provisional admission awarded by the institution organizing the studies. Those interested in obtaining a provisional admission from IAMZ, must send to IAMZ a duly completed application form, a detailed curriculum vitae and certificates proving curriculum statements (particularly copy of the university degree and of the transcript of records), together with a letter clearly requesting the application to be considered in order to obtain a provisional admission to apply for an AECID scholarship.

The IAMZ participates in the Erasmus+ mobility programme, therefore students from diverse European universities may be received.
