Jean Monnet Graduate Fellowship

DEADLINE: December 1, 2014

The Center for European Studies and the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies are offering students summer grants of $5,000 to work on issues of European integration, broadly defined as the contemporary and historical processes of integration visible in European society and culture. Student grantees will conduct research leading to the writing of a paper on a relevant topic of their choosing.

It is expected that during the spring and/or summer of 2015 the grantees, in consultation with faculty advisor(s), will devote twelve weeks of full time work to their projects. This is not a travel grant.

2015 fellows will be strongly encouraged to attend the European Studies Proseminar (EURO 600) in Winter 2015 or Winter 2016; and to contribute to selected outreach activities organized by CES at local high schools, colleges, and universities. 

Students in professional schools and graduate programs are eligible to apply. The fellowship is limited to returning students; students in the last year of terminal degree programs are not eligible.

Applicants should submit the following:

  • Jean Monnet Graduate Fellowship Application
  • 2-3 page proposal describing the project, including its topic, aims, method, and anticipated scholarly contribution. Include the proposed period of full-time work on the project.
  • Letter of recommendation from a University of Michigan faculty member (preferably the student’s advisor)
  • Current transcript (or permission for CES to electronically access it)
  • Current CV

Application materials in electronic form are to be submitted by December 1, 2014 to Julie Burnett, Academic Services Coordinator, at For further information please contact Julie Burnett.
