University of Oxford Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities
The Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme funds full-time graduate degrees in various subjects in the Humanities. Established in 2012, the programme is supported by the generosity of Mica Ertegun.
The scholarship will cover 100% of University and college fees and a grant for living costs (of at least £14,057). Awards are made for the full duration of your fee liability for the agreed course.
Ertegun Scholars also benefit from exclusive use of Ertegun House; a fully modernized, non-residential building, built in 1808, located at the heart of Oxford’s academic community. Ertegun House provides an environment for study and camaraderie that is unique at Oxford and unparalleled in the world. Each Ertegun Scholar has his or her own dedicated space for research and writing, opportunities to participate in social occasions and lively lectures, performances, and other activities developed expressly for the Ertegun Scholars. In addition, there is access to Wi-Fi, on-line access to Oxford libraries and state of the art audio-visual equipment.
The Director of Ertegun House, a distinguished member of the Oxford faculty, is available full-time as a mentor to the Ertegun Scholars and a resource to help them make the most of their experiences at Oxford and at Ertegun House.
As Ertegun Scholars, the world's top graduate students in the Humanities are brought together in a unique setting that fosters dialogue across academic disciplines, across cultures and across generations. Ertegun Scholars will leave Oxford prepared to be leaders; not only leaders in their chosen fields, but also leaders of global thought and opinion and leaders of positive action for the betterment of humanity.
