EUCE Faculty Research Grant
EUCE Faculty Research Grant Competition
The European Union Center of Excellence, with support from the Office of the Provost and the European Union Delegation to the United States, has grants available for faculty doing research related to any aspect of post-World War II European Integration.
The purpose of the EUCE Faculty Grant Competition is to develop and strengthen faculty expertise on the European Union and its member states and societies. Eligible professional activities include participation at a conference, research or collaboration with a colleague, on-site field work or data acquisition.
Grants typically fall in the $3000 to $7000 range and are awarded competitively with a fixed application deadline (see below). Applications are evaluated, among other criteria, by how the proposal contributes to the EUCE's mission and how the faculty member's work contributes to our understanding of the changing dynamics of the states and peoples making up the European Union.
Applicants will be asked to show efforts to secure matching funds from their department or school and use of funds must be coordinated with the Center to ensure that the award funds are disbursed by August 15. Unused funds cannot be carried over to a subsequent year.
Application Deadline January 1, 2013
To apply, please complete the EUCE Faculty Research Grant Competition Application. Include a written description of the project of 5-7 pages (double spaced), a current c.v., a detailed estimated budget, and indication of other sources from which funds are being sought. Under requirements of the University of Pittsburgh, all applicants must gain Institutional Review Board (IRB <http://www.irb.pitt.edu/> ) clearance or exemption before awards may be given. Grantees may apply before gaining IRB clearance but must provide documentation of IRB approval before a grant can be awarded.
