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 €1,700 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 and the starting date for the trip should be no later than 1st September 2019.

The Oxford-Geneva Bursary Scheme will award one graduate from Oxford and one graduate from Geneva €1,000 to spend at least three weeks doing research integral to their degree studies in Geneva or Oxford. The grant is intended as a contribution towards 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.
Bursary offer holders need to have started their trip by 1 September 2019 at the latest.

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.

Jenkins Scholarship

Awards in Memory of Roy Jenkins

Please note that this scholarship is now unable to make any further awards.
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.

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.
