Through its Summer Research Scholar Program, the European Studies Center (ESC), a former Jean Monnet EU Center of Excellence (JMEUCE), in collaboration with the University Library System (ULS) at the University of Pittsburgh, seeks to facilitate and further research on all aspects of European integration and the European Union. The ESC and ULS are offering two research grants to post-doctoral and senior scholars to be in residence at the University of Pittsburgh.
Applicants for the Summer Research Scholars Program should be pursuing a research project on any aspect of European integration or the European Union. Proposals should emphasize how the time in residence at the University of Pittsburgh will advance their research project.
Selected Scholars will reside in Pittsburgh for periods of one to four weeks between May 1, 2023, and August 15, 2023. Awards will range between $2,000 and $3,500 USD and will take the form of reimbursements of eligible travel and accommodation costs (based upon submitted receipts). (Please note that depending upon tax treaties in existence, awards may be subject to US tax withholdings.) In addition, ESC staff will arrange for scholars to meet with faculty with similar interests (depending upon availability) and the ULS will provide access to and bibliographic assistance in the unique and comprehensive Barbara Sloan European Union Document Collection. Summer Research Scholars are expected to acknowledge support of the ESC, the ULS, and the EU in any work resulting from this research, and to deliver a public presentation of their research and preliminary findings while in Pittsburgh.
