The Charterhouse donation was made in 1991 in order to fund bursaries for students to undertake a period of study elsewhere in Europe.
Students can study in all European Union countries, as well as in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia.
|Duration:||Three months to one year|
|Value:||Up to £6,500 is available depending on duration and costs of planned study abroad|
|Number:||Usually two to three awards available|
|Fee status:||Home/EU and Overseas|
|Level of study:||Undergraduate or graduate|
|Year of study:||All years; final year students must indicate why their proposed study abroad will be directly relevant to their studies at this stage|
Eligible travel must take place during the 2020/21 academic year, or in the long vacation either side of this. Applications for travel outside of this timeframe will not be considered.
Students are required to contact a possible supervisor at the host institution/university before submitting their application (applicants will be required to evidence this). It is expected that students will continue to be enrolled for a degree at the University of Oxford during the period of their study abroad. Successful candidates will be required to obtain the approval of their college to study away from the University of Oxford, and, where applicable, must also obtain dispensation from residence from their faculty board.
The amount offered to successful candidates may be reduced if they obtain other grants or shorten the duration of the proposed travel period. Charterhouse European Bursaries may be held in conjunction with Erasmus grants or grants from other educational bodies - all other funding awards and/or pending applications must be clearly declared in the application.
Successful candidates need to submit a report detailing the activities as well as a certificate of attendance (a letter from their host institution) at the end of their attachment to prove the length of stay.
