About the Application

During Turkey’s negotiation process for the full membership to the European Union (EU), important responsibilities fall upon every segment of the society from public institutions to the private sector and from non-governmental organizations to the universities. For this reason, there is a need for individuals in every segment of the society who can closely follow the EU-related disciplines and who are specialized on these subjects. In accordance with this need, the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme, a project funded by the EU, aims at increasing the number of experts in the EU field and supporting Turkey’s administrative capacity building efforts for the effective implementation of the EU acquis within the framework of Turkey’s negotiation process for the full membership to the EU.

 IMPORTANT NOTE: The application and evaluation process for the Scholarship Programme are summarized below. Please examine the official scholarship announcement thoroughly for the details.

Objective of the Programme and Supported Study Fields

Objective of the Programme

Within the framework of Turkey’s negotiation process for the full membership to the EU, the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme, aims at increasing the number of people specialized on the fields related to the EU acquis and hence supporting Turkey’s administrative capacity building efforts for the effective implementation of the EU acquis. Therefore, the Scholarship Programme, differing from other graduate scholarships, provides support for academic studies only done in accordance with the mentioned purpose of the scholarship.

Fields of Study Supported by the Programme

The Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme supports academic studies at graduate or research level at a university or similar institution in one of the EU member countries. Scholarships are granted exclusively for academic studies directly related to Turkey’s EU harmonisation process and the EU acquis.

Therefore, unlike other graduate scholarships, these scholarships will be awarded only to the studies on the acquis chapters listed below: 

The applicants are required to choose only one of the EU acquis chapters given above and indicate it as their “field of study” in the Application Form. After the application process is completed, making changes in the field of study is not allowed. Academic studies related to the fields other than the ones given above will not be supported. 

Field of study (EU Acquis Chapter) chosen for academic study and the academic programme (graduate or research) to be pursued should be in compliance with each other as well as with the ‘purpose of the scholarship’. Choosing the field of study and ensuring the compliance of the academic study to be pursued with the field of study chosen are solely under the responsibility of the applicants.

It is recommended to visit the web sites of the Ministry for EU Affairs, the Delegation of the European Union to Turkey and the European Commission for detailed information on the content of the above listed EU acquis chapters.

For each academic year, the amount of the scholarship and the ceiling for the tuition fees are determined by the Jean Monnet Steering Committee with the aim of ensuring a minimum living standard to the scholars.

Amount of the scholarship covers the following;

  • Tuition fees,
  • Living expenses (food and drink, accommodation, communication, local transportation, cultural activities, etc.),
  • Fixed amount for various allowances to be paid only once (to be used for the visa-passport, educational materials, travel, study visit, registration to local authorities, health and insurance, any tax liabilities and similar expenses).

The Jean Monnet Scholarship is calculated so as to cover the expenses of the scholars only. For this reason, no extra allowance is paid to the scholars who will be travelling with their families.

The scholars who could not successfully complete their academic studies or who could not fulfil their contractual obligations will be requested to pay back the whole or a partial amount of the scholarship they have been paid.

90% of the scholarship is paid upon the signature of the contracts while the remaining 10% is paid upon the completion of the programme and the closure process.

Evaluation of Applications and Selection of Awardees

 

Evaluation” section of the Scholarship Announcement should be carefully examined.

Placement Process

The Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme covers all the accredited universities and similar institutions in the EU member countries.

Applicants should identify the EU member countries in which they would like to pursue their academic studies while the application and evaluation processes are going on. “Application to the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme” and “application to the academic programmes in universities or similar institutions” are two separate but complementary processes. It is solely the applicants’ responsibility to get unconditional offer letters from the academic programmes. The related offer letters will not be requested from the applicants during the application process. The applicants shall, however, make their applications to the universities or similar institutions in a timely manner such that they should have their offer letters at hand once they are awarded the scholarship.

The scholars who indicated two different EU official languages and submitted the relevant and valid foreign language proficiency certificates for these languages at the time of application may submit offer letters for academic programmes conducted in any or both of these languages during the placement process.

 IMPORTANT NOTE: It is obligatory that the applicants apply and get offer letters from at least two academic programmes which have to be in at least two different EU member countries. The applicants who are awarded the scholarship are required to submit their offer letters by prioritizing their proposed programmes such as Preference 1, Preference 2, etc. during the placement process. 
The Ministry for EU Affairs will decide on the placement of the scholars based on the success rankings provided by the Evaluation Committee and considering the aim of achieving a balanced distribution of scholars throughout various EU member countries. Should there be more than 50% of scholars who have indicated the same EU member country as their first preference, the scholars with the higher rankings will have the right to be placed to their first preference whereas the lower ranking scholars who have indicated the same country as their first preference will be offered to study at their successive most appropriate programme alternative, i.e. in another EU member country. 
Nevertheless, the Ministry for EU Affairs retains the right to give the final decision on the programme approvals to ensure the compliance of the programmes with the fields of study (EU Acquis Chapters) and the optimal exploitation of the scholarships.

Applicants do not necessarily have to go to an EU member country where the official language is the same with the language(s) indicated in the Application Form. It is possible to study or conduct research at any university or similar institution where the teaching or research language is the same with the EU official language(s) that the applicant indicated in the Application Form. For instance; if an applicant who indicated English as the foreign language in the Application Form, is awarded the scholarship, he/she may study or conduct research at a university or similar institution in the Netherlands in which the teaching or research language is English. 

Additionally, the programmes should be in line with the field of study indicated in the Application Form and should not exceed 12 months. In the search of programmes related to the EU acquis chapter applied from, it is recommended that the applicants examine the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme Hosting Institutions Catalogue and the list of universities and programmes preferred by Jean Monnet Alumni which is published on the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme website. However it is important to note that the academic programmes pursued by the previous Jean Monnet Scholars do not constitute a precedent for the following academic years. Whether the academic programme (graduate or research) proposed by the scholar complies with the scholar’s field of study (EU Acquis Chapter) and the overall ‘purpose of the scholarship’ or not will be evaluated on a case by case basis for each scholar. 

Besides, the applicants, who are in the main list/reserve list and willing to have more detailed information and support may contact with the Jean Monnet Scholarship Programme Office via e-mail at info@jeanmonnet.org.tr. Applicants may also apply to different universities or similar institutions in EU member countries other than the ones given in the Catalogue. 

Jean Monnet Scholarships are granted exclusively for academic studies directly related to Turkey’s EU harmonisation process and the EU acquis. Therefore, the relevance of the (graduate or research)  programme proposed by the applicant is evaluated on the basis of whether this programme will enhance the knowledge of the applicant on the EU acquis chapter applied from or not. For this reason, it is highly advised that the applicants ask themselves whether that programme will contribute to enhance their knowledge on the EU acquis chapter applied from or not, while they are making their applications to the programmes.

After the announcement of award holders, the applicants in the main list as well as the applicants who moved from the reserve list to the main list instead of the applicants who withdrew due to any reasons, are informed about the Placement Process via an e-mail. In the said e-mail, detailed information is given to the applicants regarding the required documents and the process. 

The first documents required from the award holders during the placement process are the Unconditional Offer Letters obtained from at least two universities or similar institutions in at least two separate EU member countries in which they would like to conduct their academic studies. The scholars are also expected to make a prioritization in between the programmes they propose such as Preference 1, Preference 2, etc. During the placement process, first whether the duration of the selected programme is within the allowed limits (i.e. min. 3, max. 12 months) or not will be checked. Then the course content of the programme as well as the compliance of the thesis/dissertation title specified by the awardee with the EU acquis chapter applied from will be examined.

 

Contracting Process

Contracting process starts for scholars whose programme approvals are given. During this process, candidates are informed in detail regarding the required documents via an e-mail. Contracts of the scholars who send the required documents in a complete form are prepared by calculating their scholarship amounts. The contracts will be prepared by the Central Finance and Contracts Unit. Therefore, the contracting documents published with the announcement are given for information purposes only.

Monitoring Process

Scholars are monitored through the reports that they are obliged to fill in. The required reports that the scholars should submit within the period of their graduate or research programmes are given below:

  • · Initial Placement Report, at the end of the first month after the start of the programme,
  • · Interim Placement Report, following the end of the first half of the programme,
  • · Academic Progress Report that should be filled in by the academic supervisor twice, one at the end of the first half of the programme and the other at the end of the programme,
  • · Final Report that should be sent after the completion of the programme.

The other information and documents that should be submitted by the scholars in addition to these reports during and after the end of the programmes are further specified in the contracting documents. The documents used in the monitoring process are given in the annexes of the announcement for information purposes only.
