Research and Travel Awards for Graduate Students

Research & Travel Awards

The Institute for European Studies is happy to announce a grant competition for graduate students for the 2019-20 academic year.

EURO Graduate Student Awards

The Institute for European Studies (EURO) will be awarding funds to IU graduate students to support research and/or conference participation related to any aspect of European politics, society, or culture, whether current or historical in scope.  The average award will be $300-500, depending on demonstrated need and the pool of applicants. Awards are for travel between May 15 - December 31, 2020.

Research funds may be used to conduct preliminary thesis or dissertation feasibility studies or to conduct research for a Master's thesis or dissertation. Funds may also be used to facilitate conference and workshop participation. Since travel is uncertain during this time, these award funds may be used for purchases and fees related to research materials. While priority will be given to students pursuing an MA or doctoral minor in European Studies, all IU graduate students are welcome to apply.  If funds are awarded, EURO will require a copy of any paper that is presented for documentation purposes and/or a commitment to present your research to an IU audience, if requested.  EURO is happy to submit completed work to be archived at IUScholarWorks, however we do not wish to archive any work that has not yet been presented or published.  If awarded, please acknowledge support from the Institute for European Studies at IU in papers, presentations, etc.

Deadline: April 30, 2020, at 5 pm. Applicants will be notified of award decisions by May 8.
