Ertegun Graduate Scholarship

The Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme supports students pursuing degrees in a range of fields at the University of Oxford.

About the Scholarship

The Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme offers around 15 awards each year to students concurrently applying to graduate programs at Oxford in the following disciplines: 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. The Scholarship covers all university fees and provides an annual grant for living costs for the duration of the graduate program. 


To be eligible for an Ertegun Graduate Scholarship, the applicant must:

  • Meet all eligibility requirements for their intended course of study at Oxford
  • Apply to the Oxford program concurrently with submitting the application to the Ertegun Scholarship. Awards are only offered to students starting a new graduate program, not to students in their second or third year of a course. 
  • Citizens of all countries, including the UK, are eligible to apply. 

Application Process


Applicants do not need to be nominated by Dartmouth and should apply directly to the Ertegun Graduate Scholarship when they are submitting their application 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.

Fellowship Advising is available to advise students and alumni on the application process.

You must submit your application and supporting materials by the Ertegun Graduate Scholarship and University of Oxford deadlines. Information on applying, deadlines, and interviews is available on the Ertegun website
