All candidates are notified of the official decision of the EGEI selection committee by email after the evaluation of the candidatures is completed (late March).

Note that only candidates with highest scores will be invited for an interview (by March 19th 2021) and will receive notification of final decision on the award of the EM scholarship after the approval of the main and reserve lists by the EACEA (mid April).

Candidates who wish to appeal the decision of the scholarship selection committee must do so in writing an email within two weeks (14 days) from the date of the official notification. No late appeal will be considered.

The appeal should be addressed to the EGEI consortium administration at the following email address: The email subject heading should include the words “EM EGEI scholarship appeal,” together with the full name of the applicant. The justifications for the appeal must be explicitly stated in the email. Note: A candidate may appeal ONLY on the grounds of the defective or unfair procedure by the EGEI scholarship selection committee. The EGEI consortium administration is committed to answer the email within two weeks (14 days). If the answer to the appeal is not satisfactory, then the complainant can refer the matter to the Ombudsman.
