The European Union Center of Excellence 2014 Research Travel Grant Competition

The University of Wisconsin-Madison EUCE has resources available for the study of the European Union, Europe and/or EU-US relations.

The EUCE will grant a small number of travel awards of up to $1,000 to University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty and graduate students conducting research on the European Union, European integration, and/or transatlantic relations, defined broadly. The research topic should focus on post-1945 Europe and could address:

*current policy challenges and opportunities facing the European Union and/or European countries;
*the historical development of European integration since World War Two;
*the evolving role of the EU as a global actor;
*and/or relations between the United States and Europe during the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries.

Projects that do not directly address the EU itself must compare the experience of more than one European country, and preferably three. Priority will be given to faculty and students who have worked with the EU Center of Excellence, and/or to those who have not previously received travel support from this source. Repeat requests will be considered but should be accompanied by full evidence of how the project has developed since the last funding award and why a second research grant should be considered. Graduate students at both the pre-dissertation and dissertator stage are eligible to apply.

Deadline for submission of EUCE travel grant proposal is Friday, December 13, 2013. Monies will be awarded as reimbursement for travel expenses and must be requested by August 31, 2014. The proposal should not be more than two single-spaced pages in length, and should be accompanied by a CV. Proposals may be submitted electronically or on paper to:
