Scholars Programme of Europaeum

The Scholars Programme is a two-year policy and leadership course for the most talented, energetic and committed doctoral candidates from within the Europaeum network – the people who will make a difference to Europe. It is multi-disciplinary, multi-university, and multi-locational and focuses on contemporary European policy. Entry is via open competition for 30+ places every other year. It is the flagship programme of the Europaeum.

The Europaeum Scholars Programme is taken alongside a doctorate in 7-8 intensive modules, each of 3-5 days, in universities across Europe. The modules include seminars, debates and workshops with leading academics and practitioners; professional skills training; and substantial teamwork. Over the two years, the Scholars operate in small multidisciplinary groups on a project designed and conducted entirely by them to “make Europe a better place”. The final proposals are evaluated by a panel of experts and presented at an international conference.

The Europaeum Scholars Programme offers a unique opportunity to be part of a network of some of the brightest people of your generation who are interested in shaping the future of Europe. You will be able to connect your doctoral research with the world of policy making, to draw on the combined resources of eighteen of Europe’s leading universities, to learn how to work as a team, to learn what leadership entails, and to understand the complexity of policy making. You will learn more about yourself. You will have the opportunity to visit key European institutions and learn about how they function in conversation with leading academics, practitioners, and policy makers aiming to tackle societal and cultural challenges. You will directly engage with people facing some of the most difficult circumstances in contemporary society and you will emerge with knowledge and a set of skills and contacts equal to any group anywhere.

Each student is fully funded by a scholarship covering all accommodation, travel, food and tuition. No funds are transferred direct to Scholars but the scholarship is worth about €10,000.

European Higher Education Organization

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe. The EHEO general plan stresses that: Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected. The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders. Thus, EHEO plans: improve academic and scientific interaction of universities; protect the interests of universities; interact more closely with public authorities of European countries; popularize European higher education in the world; develop academic mobility; seek funding for European universities.
