Trinity College Dublin Announces Scholarship in European Studies
Posted on 12 May 2014
Trinity College Dublin has announced a new scholarship in European Studies. The scholarship is being offered to post graduate students at the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies.
A postgraduate scholarship is being offered for non-EU students enrolled in the MPhil in European Studies. The one-year scholarship will consist of full fee remission and a stipend of €8,000. This scholarship is open to non-EU students enrolled in the European Studies MPhil in the 2014/15 academic year.
The MPhil in European Studies is a unique interdisciplinary programme focusing on European identity and the development of the idea of Europe. Unlike other degrees that focus almost exclusively the development of the European Union and the process of political and economic integration, the one-year course at Trinity provides a complex discussion of Europe.
Professor David Scott, Head of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies commented: "The School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies is delighted to announce the European Studies Non-EU Student Scholarship for the 2014/15 academic year. This unique course equips students with expert knowledge of key areas in European Studies, together with the research skills necessary to do original work in this challenging interdisciplinary field. Our graduates are able to apply credibly for jobs with an international dimension or to proceed to doctoral research."
Course Director, Dr Balazs Apor, Assistant Professor in European Studies, added: “The course offers a unique, interdisciplinary approach to the study of Europe. ‘Europe’ is understood as a multifaceted concept that encapsulates a range of political, social and cultural values. It is not merely a synonym for the political project represented by the European Union: it is also a potent idea and a form of cultural identity. The aim of the course is to familiarise students with diverse constructions of Europe.”
Scholarship application closing date is June 6th, 2014. Applicants should complete the application process at: https://www.tcd.ie/langs-lits-cultures/postgraduate/scholarships/
This scholarship is supported by alumni of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies, Trinity College Dublin.
