Jean Monnet Graduate Fellowship

DEADLINE: February 15 at 11:59 pm

The Center for European Studies and Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies are offering grants of $5,000 to doctoral candidates working on contemporary or historical issues relating to Europe. The grant aims to foster projects that are about Europe, and that address transnational or pan-European topics in a substantive way. 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/summer term the grantees, in consultation with their faculty advisor(s), will devote twelve weeks of full-time work on their projects. Grants will not be considered for students graduating in the current Winter and Summer Terms.
