The Council for European Studies (CES) invites eligible graduate students in the humanities to apply for the 2017 Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships in European Studies. Winners of the Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships will also be expected to participate in a number of activities organized by the Council for European Studies, which are designed to support early career development. These activities include: presenting at the International Conference of Europeanists, hosted by the Council for European Studies; publishing in and producing a feature for CES’ online journal; and participating in several digital and in-person career development seminars and/or workshops. The Mellon-CES Dissertation Completion Fellowships are funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.  

The mission of the CES is to produce, support, and recognize outstanding, multi-disciplinary research on Europe through a wide range of programs and initiatives. These include fellowships, grants, publications, awards, conferences and meetings, public lectures and symposia, as well as direct research and artistic collaboration. CES is particularly committed to supporting research that can play a critical role in understanding and applying the lessons of European history and integration to contemporary problems, including those in the areas of global security, sustainability, environmental stewardship, and democracy.
