With the exception of the United Kingdom, the Scatcherd Scholarships gives students the opportunity to study in all EU countries. The scholarship was founded by Jane Ledig-Rowohlt, the widow of Heinrich Ledig-Rowohlt, a German publisher.
Students at all levels of higher education are able to apply for the Scatscherd Scholarship. Students who are a part of an Erasmus programme are not eligible to receive this scholarship. Whilst studying abroad on this scholarship, students are expected to stay enrolled at Oxford.
