This month, the Europaeum hosted a special celebration for the 10th Anniversary of the Jenkins Scholarship Scheme. To mark the occasion, a commemorative booklet was produced, highlighting the history of the scheme, memories of Roy Jenkins and reflections on their experiences by the 51 Jenkins Scholars themselves.
Following the death of the former European Commissioner Roy Jenkins in 2003, more than five hundred thousand euros was raised, which has supported some five awards a year - four graduates coming into Oxford each year to study in the Social Sciences, Arts and the Humanities, and one Oxford graduate studying at a Europaeum university each year. It is now hoped that means can be found to extend what has clearly been a very successful and productive scheme.
Please read the booklet here.
