Call for Proposals
and Perryman/Center for European Studies Research Grants
Attention Syracuse University Graduate Students
The Moynihan Institute’s Center for European
Studies (CES) will grant awards from $500 - $1,500 to graduate students to
support research for MA thesis or doctoral research projects concerning 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. Proposals will be
judged on the basis of (i) the quality of the proposed research, (ii) the
organization and thoughtfulness of the proposal, and (iii) the appropriateness
and feasibility of the research plan in relation to the student's background
For the purposes of the grant competition, “Europe”
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 grant from the
Moynihan Institute, but no more than one award will be given by the Moynihan
Institute per year per student. 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.
