Through its links with a consortium of eight European universities, IU has been given the opportunity to support the application for a full scholarship for an IUB or IUPUI student to enrol in a two-year interdisciplinary Euroculture MA program. This includes a fee remission worth 16,000 euros (approx. $22,000) and a monthly stipend of 1,000 euros (approx $1,400) for 24 months. The details of the program and of the participating universities can be found at
The successful student would begin his/her studies at one of the eight European universities in the fall of 2013, would move to a second European university in the spring of 2014, would have the option of returning to IU for the fall of 2014, and would finish back at their starting university in the spring of 2015. The Euroculture MA has approximately 150 students active at any one time, from all over the world. All courses are offered in English but there is plenty of opportunity to learn or improve on other European languages, and help with accommodation is offered by host universities.
The participating universities are:
Georg-August-Universität: Göttingen, Germany
Università degli Studi di Udine, Italy
Universidad de Deusto: Bilbao, Spain
Université de Strasbourg, France
Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, the Netherlands
Univerzita Palackého: Olomouci, Czech Republic
Uniwersytet Jagielloński: Krakowie, Poland
Uppsala Universitet, Sweden
Interested students should have completed their BA by May 2013 and should have a competitive GPA and be able to provide proof of their interest in study in Europe and ability to complete a graduate course of study overseas. The deadline for applications is November 23, 2012. Anyone interested should contact Prof. John McCormick at with a statement of interest, a resume, and letters of support from two IU faculty members. They should meanwhile apply online direct to the Euroculture MA program at
