Faculty Grants for Research on Europe
The European Studies Center has grants available for faculty doing research related to Europe that is not focused on the European Union. The purpose of the European Studies Grant Competition is to develop and strengthen faculty expertise on various aspects of historical or contemporary Europe, its states and peoples. Eligible professional activities include participation at a conference, research or collaboration with a colleague, on-site field work or data acquisition. Projects will typically be carried out during the academic year, although the completion of the research activity can take place after the end of the academic year.
Awards for research-related activities typically range from $500 to $2,000 and are awarded competitively. Applicants will be asked to show efforts to secure matching funds from their department or school or from external sources.
Please be aware that some foreign expenses may not be reimburseable under current University policy. Grant recipients should work closely with the staff of the EUCE, payment processing, and other relevant units of the University to determine eligibility of expenses before beginning travel.
Application Deadline: January 1, 2014
To apply, please complete the Faculty European Grant Competition Application Form. Include a description of the project of 5-7 pages (double-spaced), a current c.v., a detailed estimated budget, and an indication of other sources form wich funds are being sought.
