The European Union Center at the University of Washington fosters the development of new academic talent by providing research grants to UW graduate students working on EU topics. This year the center will provide up to two UW graduate students travel and research grants of approximately $1,900 each to conduct EU-related research in Europe in the spring and summer of 2018.

Applications are welcome from UW graduate students at all levels of research, as long as the research proposal focuses on issues related to the European Union. The center seeks to fund graduate research that will lead to theses or dissertations that are focused on – or include a significant discussion of – the institutions and policies of the European Union and/or impact of these policies and European integration on European nations and societies.

Funding for the graduate research grants is made possible by the 2015-18 Jean Monnet Chair grant from the European Commission.

Applicants for EU Center graduate research grants should produce and email a (3-5 page) research proposal and a curriculum vitae to The research proposal should include a brief budget that details the proposed expenses related to the research. In addition, applicants should request one letter of recommendation from faculty which they should send to (Make sure all items sent clearly state the applicants name).

Application materials must be emailed no later than Monday, March 5, 2018 in order to receive full consideration.
