The University of Oxford is offering Masters degree scholarships under The Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme to students in the Humanities who wish to enrol for studies commencing AY 2020/2021 in fields covered by the following Faculties: Classics (including classical archaeology); English Language and Literature; Fine Art (DPhil in Contemporary Art History and Theory only), 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; Theology and Religion; and the Film Aesthetics and Women’s Studies interdisciplinary courses.

In addition, the following courses managed in the Social Sciences division, namely, in Global and Area Studies and the Social Sciences Division, are also eligible for an Ertegun Scholarship, even though they have a later deadline of 24 January 2020: MPhil in Japanese Studies, MSc in Japanese Studies, MPhil Modern Chinese Studies, MSc Contemporary Chinese Studies, MPhil Modern South Asian Studies, MSc Modern South Asian Studies, MPhil in Classical Archaeology, MSt in Classical Archaeology, and DPhil in Classical Archaeology.


The scholarship covers tuition and college fees in full. Scholars also receive a generous annual grant for living costs (the rate for 2019-20 is approximately £15,009), which is normally sufficient to cover the living costs of a single student living in Oxford.

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.


Applicants for the scholarship In AY 2020-2021 should be applying to start a new full-time graduate course at Oxford. Students from all countries and all backgrounds are welcome to apply for Ertegun Scholarships, including UK students. The University is looking for the very best students who will realise Mica Ertegun’s Mission and one day become leaders in their chosen fields.

Candidates must ensure they meet the criteria for entry to their course, including English language requirements.

This scholarship may not be held in conjunction with any other awards. Awards may only be offered for students starting a new graduate course. Current graduate students are not eligible to apply for funding for a second or third year of their course.


Applications for the Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarships in the Humanities are to be done online at the same time when the application for the Oxford course is made. The abovesaid courses in the Humanities have a deadline of 10 January 2020. Some courses managed by the Social Sciences Division are also eligible and these have a later deadline of 24 January 2020.
