The Oxford-Geneva Bursary Scheme will award one graduate €1,000 to spend at least three weeks doing research integral to their degree studies in Geneva. The scheme, which is now in its seventeenth year, has always proved popular. The grant is intended to ensure graduates can cover travel, accommodation and other related costs during their study period. Study can include periods of specialist library or archive work; supervisions with desired tutors; taught programmes, or field work, including work with organisations based in and around Geneva.
Bursary holders are expected to be self-directed, and will need to negotiate their own study arrangements at Oxford.
If you are on a one-year master’s programme you would be encouraged to go around Easter time (ie. between Hilary and Trinity terms), so as to not miss three weeks of full term.
A statement of up to 1,200 words detailing how your research relates to the European theme and how you envisage to make best use of the award, should you be successful
Two academic references, sent separately, and direct by the referees, by the deadline

Oxford-Prague Study Bursary
The Europaeum is once again making a stipend available to support an Oxford graduate to undertake a period of research study at Charles University, Prague. This bursary, supported by Sekyra Group, will provide two graduate students with an award of €1000 each to spend a month doing research integral to their degree studies. The scheme will allow one Charles graduate to undertake a period of research study in Oxford, and an Oxford graduate student to spend a month attached to Charles University. The award is modelled on our highly successful Oxford-Geneva Bursary Scheme and is intended to ensure graduates can cover travel, accommodation and other related costs during their study period.
Students are expected to be self-directed and to manage their own study visit. Study can include periods of specialist library or archive work; supervisions with desired tutors; taught programmes, or fieldwork.
If you are on a one-year master’s programme you would be encouraged to go around Easter time (ie. between Hilary and Trinity terms), so as to not miss a month during full term.
The Jenkins Scheme is linked to the Europaeum association of leading European universities. Applicants may be submitted from the University partners within the Europaeum. These are: the Universities of Oxford, Leiden, Bologna, Paris I (Pantheon-Sorbonne), Geneva (the Graduate Institute of International & Development Studies), Prague (Charles University), Helsinki, Krakow (the Jagiellonian University), Madrid (Complutense University), Munich (LMU), Barcelona (Pompeu Fabra), Lisbon (Institute of Political Studies), and St Andrews.
Please note that this scholarship is very likely not going to be able to make any further awards – we expect a news update on this in late November 2017.
The Jenkins Scholarship Scheme honours the lifelong achievements of the former President of the European Commission (1976-1981) and Chancellor of the University of Oxford (1987-2003). The Roy Jenkins Memorial Fund was set up in 2003-4, to establish scholarships to bring students from the countries of the EU to study at the University of Oxford, and to support Oxford students going onto further study in Europe. More than 70 Jenkins Scholars have been elected in past years.
Awards are for now worth £14,000 per annum, usually for one year. Jenkins Scholars will be eligible to study at Oxford for a Masters degree in the Humanities or Social Sciences, the disciplines closest to Lord Jenkins’ own political and literary interests.
