Call for Proposals

Moynihan Summer Research Grants – Europe

Attention Syracuse University Graduate Students

This year the Moynihan Institute’s Center for European Studies announces it will grant awards from $500 - $1,500 to graduate students to support summer field research for MA thesis or doctoral research projects in Europe. The purpose of the award is to provide students the opportunity to gather preliminary data, make contacts, map topics, and increase competitiveness of future proposals for funding. Any student enrolled in an MA or PhD program at Syracuse University may apply.

The awards are competitive and proposals are judged on the basis of i) quality of the proposed research, ii) organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal, and iii) appropriateness and feasibility of the research plan in relation to the student's background and qualifications.

“Europe” for the purposes of the grant competition includes any country in the standard geographic area west of the Urals and north and west of the Caspian and Black seas, including Russia, the states of the South Caucasus, and Turkey.

You may apply for more than one summer grant from the Moynihan Institute, but you will not receive more than one in a given year from the Institute.  Awards are ranked separately, so if your proposal is accepted by more than one committee, you will be awarded the better opportunity. If you win an award this year, you may apply for this or another award next year.

DEADLINE: Thursday, February 27, 2020 at 11:59 pm EST
