Oxford-Helsinki Study Bursary
The Europaeum is pleased to announce a new stipend available to support a student exchange between Oxford and the University of Helsinki this academic year.
The Oxford-Helsinki Bursary Scheme will award one Oxford graduate €2,000 to spend up to one month doing research integral to their degree studies in Helsinki, and vice versa for a graduate from Helsinki coming to Oxford. The scheme 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 Helsinki. For Oxford students it makes most sense to undertake the trip to Finland between Hilary and Trinity Term. Students need to be enrolled on their current course at the point of embarking on the trip.

Please note that you have to complete the exchange while still enrolled on your current course, and the bursary cannot be deferred.

Bursary holders are expected to be self-directed, and will need to negotiate their own study arrangements at Oxford. Advice and support can be obtained by contacting Susanne Heinrich (Administrator, The Europaeum) on firstname.lastname@example.org, or Dr Juhana Aunesluoma email@example.com in Helsinki.
The deadline for applications is 1st March 2018.
