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/early April).

Note that only candidates with highest scores will be invited for an interview (mid March) 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 1 week (7 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 and should be duly documented or argued (ie we do not accept generic statements about the quality of your application as we do not make an evaluation on your absolute quality but, given the large number of applications, we need to assess the relative position). In other words, 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 1 week (7 days). If the answer to the appeal is not satisfactory (not on generic terms but with hard evidence), then the complainant can refer the matter to the Ombudsman.
