Hanseatic Scholarships for Britons
Theses scholarships were established in 1970 following a pre-war program corresponding to the example of the British Cecil Rhodes Trust’s scholarships for German Students in Great Britain. It aims a deeper Anglo-German understanding in an European context.
The Hanseatic scholarships for Britons are offered to students of every nationality at the University of Oxford and Cambridge who want to study one or two years at a German university. Annually two scholarships of 1.250 Euro per month are granted over a period of one to two years.
The target group consists of students whose studies and personal development have most to gain from a period of study in Germany, and will not normally include those who have already enjoyed an extended period of schooling or education in a German-speaking country. Considering its aim the students applying for the Hanseatic scholarship should be working on a subject that bears a German-British reference in terms of European understanding.
The application procedure takes place at the University of Oxford. For further information please check the rules and the current announcement.
The scholars are selected by an independent committee.
