Scholarships and Prizes 2005: Miscellaneous and Multidisciplinary

WIENER-ANSPACH AWARDS TO THE UNIVERSITY OF BRUSSELS 2006–7

The Trustees of the Wiener-Anspach Foundation, whose aim is to promote cultural relations between the University of Brussels and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, offer Research Fellowships and Postgraduate Scholarships in any department of the Université Libre de Bruxelles for graduates (in any subject) of Oxford and Cambridge Universities (who need not have graduated at the time of application). Up to six awards are available to Oxford and Cambridge graduates for the academic year 2006–7.

The Scholarships are awarded for study leading to postgraduate diplomas conferred by the University of Brussels and may be of particular interest to students who wish to study law, economics, or political science with an emphasis on the European Union. The Institut d'Etudes Européenes within the University, founded in 1963, organises Master's degrees (diplômes d'études complémentaires (DEC) and diplômes d'études spécialisées (DES)) in European Law, European Economics, and European Political Science. The EU institutions are situated near the Institute of European Studies, and students are able to use their research facilities and to meet prominent people within the Commission. The Institute also organises expeditions to the European Parliament and to the Court of Justice. Information on programmes offered at the ULB may be found at http://www.ulb.ac.be.

The value of the awards will be approximately 16,000 euros for one academic year. University fees are also paid for by the Foundation. Candidates must have a good knowledge of spoken and written French.

Further details and application forms may be obtained from the Student Funding and International Office, University Offices, Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JD (telephone: (2)70241/(2)80487). The closing date for applications will be 10 January 2006.
