Phoenix - Intercultural Exchange For Internationalization

Project Goals

The Phoenix Project grants scholarships which include a monthly allowance, travel, insurance and participation costs, to students (undergraduate, master, PhD, post-doctorate) and staff members from Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine or Syria to undertake a mobility period or full degree in a partner University in Europe. Europeans will also be able to apply for the scholarship and study in the Middle East.

Phoenix is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project coordinated by the University of Almeria. The University of Oldenburg is a core partner of this Erasmus Mundus Project.
