The Institute for European Studies is happy to announce two grant competitions for the Fall of 2018 and the Spring of 2019. Eligible applicants are allowed to apply for both, but with the understanding that only one award may be accepted per person.
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence Grant offers one $1,500 award in the Fall and one in the Spring to an IU faculty member (TT or NTT) to support research and / or travel related to any aspect of European politics, society, or culture, whether current or historical in scope.
EURO's Title VI Grant offers 2 awards of $1,500 each in the Fall and 2 in the Spring to IU faculty to support international research and / or travel, as well as 2 awards of $750 each (also Fall and Spring) to support domestic research and / or travel related to any aspect of European politics, society, or culture, whether current or historical in scope.
For conference travel, formal papers are strongly prioritized over participation in roundtable discussions or lecture notes. Faculty who receive funding will be expected to present their research at a EURO–sponsored event following the trip or research project. Faculty members can use the topic from their conference paper or talk about their current and future research. EURO will make room reservations and publicize the talk.
Applicants must submit:
- A completed EURO Faculty Request Travel Application
- Documentation of paper acceptance for conference (please indicate if peer reviewed), or abstract of proposed research project.
- A current curriculum vitae
- A budget that includes other sources of funds that may be combined with the EURO award
- The paper presented indicating source of funding on the title page under "Acknowledgments" with your request for reimbursement
- A mention of which grants the applicant would like to be considered for.
The Fall application deadline for all competitions is November 5, 2018, at 5 pm.
The Spring application deadline for all competitions is March 25, 2019, at 5 pm.
Recipients of all grants are expected to send a report detailing how the grant was used and, on invitation, to present their results at a lecture hosted by the Institute for European Studies.
