Center for European Studies Graduate Student Summer Research Grants
The Center for European Studies of the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, in the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, announces it will grant awards to graduate students to support summer field research for MA thesis or doctoral research projects in Europe. Graduate students at Syracuse University are eligible and encouraged to apply. 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. 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.
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. Other types of support that could exclude you from receiving a summer research grant include summer FLAS, summer de Sardon-Glass support, and any other summer support from the Moynihan 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 25, 2016
