The Europaeum Scholars Programme is a world-class training programme that is alongside an existing doctorate. It is meant for those exceptional students who have the capacity and the desire to shape the future of Europe for the better.
About the program:
- The primary focus of the Europaeum Scholars Programme is to engage academic thinking with policy making and to produce a new generation of leaders, thinkers and researchers with the capacity to meet the cultural, political and societal challenges facing Europe today.
- It runs for two years alongside Scholars’ existing doctoral studies and is multi-disciplinary, multi-university, and multi-locational and focused on contemporary European policy.
- Scholars visit key European and international institutions where they learn about how they function in conversation with practitioners and policy makers.
- Each student is fully funded by a scholarship worth €10,000 per annum for two years. This covers full accommodation, travel, food and all tuition.
- The Programme will start in Oxford in April 2020.
- Candidates are expected to be people who “think for themselves but not just of themselves”. They should have the desire to shape the future of Europe for the better. And they should have the potential to do so.
