Application Deadline: Friday, December 1, 2017


The Jean Monnet European Union Center of Excellence at UW-Madison will offer two research travel awards for 2017-2018. The purpose of the awards is to support UW-Madison students who are travelling for research related to personal scholarship on contemporary European Union or European Studies topics. Award recipients may present original scholarship at a conference.



Any continuing undergraduate or graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison may apply for these awards. Affiliation with the European Horizons group is not mandatory but is a positive factor in applicant consideration.
