Are you are interested in shaping the future of Europe? If so, and if you are a doctoral student in the Humanities or Social Sciences and whose research relates to European Studies (broadly defined) then the Europaeum Scholars programme is for you.
At its core, the Scholars programme involves multidisciplinary team work engaged in problem solving within the context of contemporary Europe. Scholars work intensively in small groups on a policy project that they identify, design and develop under the guidance of a mentor. Each team’s policy recommendations are judged by a panel of external experts, and there is the potential for publication of the best.
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. A maximum of 36 places is available.
The Programme will start in Oxford in April 2020 and proceed at the dates and locations set out in this document (all together there are 8 modules). Scholars participating in the Programme are expected to attend all modules in full. The contents of the modules are structured so that there is progression through the leadership, ethical, and training strands of the programme, as well as enabling organic group project development. Each module will last between 3 and 5 days.
