ERTEGUN Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities

ERTEGUN Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities

For 2013-14, approximately 12 scholarships will be available for one-year and two-year full-time Master’s degrees at Oxford.

Candidates should be applying to start a new graduate course at Oxford.
Applications to The Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme may be made by those working in fields covered by the following faculties: Classics (including classical archaeology); English Language and Literature; History (including history of art and the history of architecture); Linguistics, Philology and Phonetics; Medieval
and Modern Languages (covering most European languages and their literature); Music; Oriental Studies (including Far Eastern and Middle Eastern Studies, and the study of a wide range of languages); Philosophy; and Theology.

You must ensure you meet the requirements for entry to your course, including English language requirements.
This scholarship may not be held in conjunction with any other awards.
Current graduate students are not eligible to apply.

What does the scholarship cover?
100% of university and college fees, and a grant for living costs (the rate for 2012-13 is approximately £13,590). Ertegun scholars also enjoy dedicated use of Ertegun House, which provides space for each Scholar for writing and research, as well as opportunities to participate in social occasions, lively lectures, performances and other activities developed expressly for the Scholars.
Awards are made for the full duration of a student’s fee liability for the agreed course. If your scholarship is offered for a course lasting more than one year, the continuation of your scholarship each year is subject to an annual renewal process based on satisfactory academic progress.

How do I apply?
For more information on submitting the application, please see the Graduate Admissions and Funding website.
You apply for the scholarship at the same time as you apply to Oxford by selecting ‘Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarships in the Humanities’ in the Funding Section of the University’s Graduate Application Form. Candidates should apply by Application Deadline 2 (4 January 2013 for Philosophy; 18 January 2013 for all other subjects).
You must also complete a supporting statement and upload it together with your Graduate Application Form by the application deadline in order for your application to be complete.

What is the selection process?
Ertegun Scholars will be selected in a highly competitive process by an Ertegun Scholarships Selection Committee made up of the Head of Oxford’s Humanities Division and one representative from each of the eligible
faculties, acting in consultation with the Board of Ertegun Overseers.

How will I know the outcome?
All successful candidates will be notified by email. If you do not hear from us, then your application to this scheme has been unsuccessful. Due to the volume of applications we receive, we are unable to contact unsuccessful applicants individually or provide feedback on applications.
