Research grants from the Europe Center’s first “Graduate Student Grant Competition” were awarded this past October to sixteen Stanford students. The bi-annual competition is part of the Europe Center's efforts to support student research focused on Europe. Winning proposals were selected from a wide range of disciplines, including political science, history, literature, anthropology, psychology and music. “This is a terrific group of energetic scholars with innovative proposals. I am really looking forward to learning about the results of their research,” stated Ken Scheve, Europe Center director. For the list of awardees and their research project titles, please visit the grant's awardee page.
The second round of the competition will take place in Spring 2014, and is again open to humanities and social science Ph.D. candidates whose dissertation research or approved dissertation projects focus on Europe. Professional students whose interests focus on some aspect of European politics, economics, history, or culture are also encouraged to apply.
