Scholarships for graduates in History and related subjects

The European Civilization Chair at the Natolin Campus offers scholarships annually to graduates in History and related subjects who wish to follow the postgraduate programme in European Interdisciplinary Studies during the 2018-2019 academic year. 
These scholarships are available to successful applicants from any country and are funded by the European Parliament in honour of the late Professor Bronisław GEREMEK and bear his name. They are intended both for History graduates who wish to combine further historical studies with European studies, as well as for graduates in related disciplines who wish to study History in an interdisciplinary European context. Related disciplines include: International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, Area Studies, Geography, Philosophy, History of Art, Theology, Classics, Modern Languages and Literature.

The holders of these scholarships will be entered automatically for the major in European History and Civilization. They will be required to write their Master’s Thesis on a topic relating to European history and/or European civilization, approved by the Chairholder.
Candidates applying for a History scholarship must motivate this within their online application (max 600 words). They have to explain why he or she is interested in the European History and Civilization. 

Why choose European Interdisciplinary Studies?

The MA in European Interdisciplinary Studies (EIS) at the Natolin campus of the College of Europe in Warsaw is designed to respond to the growing need for experts in European integration processes and the EU's external relations who can provide imaginative responses to today's most complex national, regional and global challenges. Students are trained to think beyond disciplinary boundaries while gaining in-depth knowledge in EU public affairs and policies, external relations, the EU’s neighbourhood and European history and civilization. In short, we aim to provide a 360o view of Europe and its place in the world.

The programme fosters excellence in research with two established Chairs: one in European history and civilization, another on the European Neighbourhood Policy and the EU's neighbours, as well as through the academic expertise of its international faculty. Two intensive study trips in Europe and its neighbourhood and international academic competitions, provide students with field experience. VIP events and other extracurricular activities are organized throughout the year. Students also benefit from the Library, the Language Service and the Careers Office of the Natolin campus.

Both the interdisciplinary programme and its professional dimension prepare graduates for the rapidly changing challenges of the international, European and national public sectors, as well as the non-governmental and private sectors. They may also serve as a step towards a PhD. We aim to educate cross-cultural communicators, innovative negotiators, administrators, analysts, researchers and leaders with multi-disciplinary and contextual, regional and international expertise. Graduates can also draw on a supportive and extensive alumni network.

This advanced MA is for university graduates in law, economics, political and social sciences, history, as well as other fields such as journalism, philosophy or languages.
