DEADLINE: December 1, 2009

Thanks to a grant from the European Commission, the European Union Center and the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies are offering students summer grants of $5,000 to work on issues of European integration, broadly defined. Student grantees will conduct research leading to the writing of a paper on a relevant topic of their choosing.

It is expected that during the spring and/or summer of 2010 the grantees, in consultation with faculty advisors of their choosing, will devote twelve weeks of full time work to their projects. This is not a travel grant.

Students will participate in a not-for-credit Graduate Seminar on EU Affairs held in Winter semester 2010 and may be invited to contribute to selected outreach activities organized by the European Union Center at local high schools, colleges, and universities. They will also present the preliminary results of their research at a public event held in the fall of 2010.

Students in professional schools and graduate programs are eligible to apply. Applicants should submit 2-3 page proposals describing the project they intend to carry out, including its topic, aims, method, and anticipated scholarly contribution. They should also indicate the period in which they will be conducting full time work on their project. A letter of recommendation from a University of Michigan faculty member (preferably the student’s advisor), most recent transcript, and current CV should accompany the proposal.

Application materials in electronic form are to be submitted by December 1, 2009 to Dario Gaggio, Director, CES-EUC, at dariog@umich.edu. For further information please visit this website or contact Julie Claus at jclaus@umich.edu or 734.936.1842.
