Requests for Funding
The Center for the Study of Europe regularly funds faculty in their pursuits to accomplish their three basic responsibilities in the areas of: research, teaching and citizenship.
Research – CSE funds can help faculty in their research endeavors including travel expenses for summer research. Twelve faculty are selected each year to receive between a $2,000-$4,000 stipend to cover their travel. Travel expenses to academic workshops and conferences are not typically covered by CSE funds.
Departmental lectures may work with the CSE and collaborate with other on-campus clubs and groups in order to recruit speakers to come to campus. CSE also co-sponsors conferences held on campus.
The “Tell Me More” program is now available to faculty desiring to learn another language. Click here for more information on “Tell Me More.”
Teaching – Faculty have used the CSE for developing new course curricula. There is a limited number of new-course development grants available each year. CSE grants also cover faculty travel to explore the feasibility of new study abroad and internship programs.
Citizenship – A faculty member’s responsibility to give back to the community The CSE has partnered with the Center for the Improvement of Teacher Education and Schooling (CITES) in the College of Education which aims to give pedagogical and curricular support to public school teachers.
All requests for CSE funds should be directed to Lora Cook, CSE administrative director.
If you would like to discuss proposals in any of these categories, please contact Wade Jacoby, CSE director.
