As Ertegun Scholars, the world’s top graduate students in the Humanities are brought together with Oxford’s exceptional community of scholars, 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. Every year, at least fifteen full-time graduate students in the Humanities, chosen from throughout the world in a highly competitive selection process, enjoy the benefits of this programme: payment of all tuition and college fees, a generous living stipend, and the exclusive use of Ertegun House.
