Oxford is at the forefront of humanities research internationally, and attracts outstanding academics, researchers and students from across the globe. Graduate students have the opportunity to undertake their studies and research in a stimulating, challenging and highly rewarding intellectual environment.
The Humanities Division offers taught graduate and research degrees in a wide range of subjects. Some of these subjects are relatively new and many cross the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Others are areas of academic research that have long been recognised as of central importance, and they include some that few other universities are still able to support. In every case our objective is to sustain and to teach the highest standards of scholarship.
Oxford is immensely proud to be able to offer the Ertegun Scholarships in the Humanities. The University has one goal in mind when selecting Ertegun Scholars: to choose the very best students who will realise Mica Ertegun’s Mission and one day become leaders in their chosen fields.
These are highly competitive scholarships with over 1,500 applicants for around 15 awards each year, with an average 1.5% success rate for Masters candidates and 1.3% for Doctoral candidates.
All awards for admission in 2020 have been made. Applications for admission in 2021 will open on September 1, 2020.
Please check the University’s Application Guide for more information about applying to Oxford.
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. The online application form for October 2021 is available from 1 September 2020, with a 8 January 2021 (noon) deadline. Some courses managed by the Social Sciences Division are also eligible. These have a later deadline of 22 January 2021. Please refer to the Graduate Admissions website for the most up to date information about deadlines.
You must also complete a supporting statement (Word doc) and upload it as a pdf document together with your Graduate Application Form by the application deadline in order for your application to be complete. The statement requires you to answer three questions (in no more than 500 words each) that relate to the aims and mission of the Ertegun Scholarship programme. The Selection Committee will consider your supporting statement in conjunction with your course application.
