Jenkins scholarships scheme – applications open !

Applications are now invited from new  candidates for the prestigious 21015-16 Jenkins Scholarships. Please note that applications need to be made directly to Oxford’s Graduate Funding and Admissions office, before the official closing date late January 2016. More than 60 awards – each worth more than €17,000 – have already been made since the first award in 2004. Five new Jenkins Scholars are due to begin their academic studies at Europaeum-linked universities next September, including graduates from the University of Leiden, from Jagiellonian, Krakow and from Helsinki coming to Oxford, while Oxford graduates will go to Munich and to Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne (please see the press notice here for more details). This scholarship scheme honours the former President of the European Commission and Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord (Roy) Jenkins, who was involved in supporting the founding of the Europaeum association in the early 1990s. Every year scholarships are awarded to the best applicants who wish to study for degrees in Humanities or Social Sciences, subjects close to Lord Jenkins own interests, at Europaeum-linked partner universities.
