The Council for European Studies invites eligible graduate students to apply for the 2013 CES Pre-Dissertation Research Fellowships. Each fellowship includes a $4,000 stipend, the opportunity to publish in Perspectives on Europe, a bi-yearly journal of the Council for European Studies, and other professional development activities.
CES Pre-Dissertation Fellowships fund two months’ travel to Europe to conduct the exploratory phase of a projected dissertation project in the social sciences or humanities which will require a subsequent stay in Europe. The program is intended to facilitate the transition from coursework to fieldwork, and to enable students to make rapid progress in refining their initial ideas into a feasible, interesting, and fundable doctoral project. Recipients are expected to use CES support to lay such research groundwork as determining the availability of archival materials, scouting possible field sites, testing research design, securing ties with relevant European scholars or institutions. Typically, they submit applications for dissertation research funding soon after completing CES-funded preliminary research.
To be eligible, applicants must be enrolled in a doctoral program at a university that is a member of the council for European Studies Academic Consortium; possess any language skills required to carry out the proposed research; have completed the majority of doctoral coursework; and have not yet begun substantial dissertation research in Europe.
Barring exceptional circumstances, students who have already received comparable support for pre-dissertation research will not be considered eligible. Students whose universities are not currently members of the CES consortium are welcome to apply; every effort will be made to enroll the institution, thereby establishing eligibility.
Applications are due (along with all supporting materials) on or before February 1, 2013.
