Advanced Graduate Student Travel FellowshipsFSI Stanford, The Europe Center Fellowship
Not accepting applications at this time
The Europe Center (TEC) graduate student fellowships are part of the Stanford-Austria scholarly exchange and public event program hosted jointly by TEC at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI), and the University of Vienna in Austria. These fellowships are intended to support Stanford graduate students enrolled in a program in any field in Stanford's seven schools, and are especially appropriate for graduate students who have reached the advanced stages of their doctoral research. The fellowship is intended to support either short research visits (two to four weeks) or for a longer period of research work in Austria (up to an academic year) to work with faculty and libraries and archives in Austria. Research projects could, however, address issues and thus involve travel to other Central European institutions of higher learning and affiliated scholarly libraries and archives in Central Europe.
The TEC advanced graduate student fellowship to Austria and Central Europe offers support for travel (roundtrip economy airfare) between Stanford and Vienna as well as - in pertinent cases - Central European countries, living expenses for research visits lasting two to four weeks (or longer version), and also offers limited reimbursement for research costs (e.g. photocopying, research library access fees, etc.) necessary to complete the research during the visit.
Students enrolled in any masters, doctoral or professional degree program at Stanford University who have completed graduate program preliminary course work and have begun advanced work on a dissertation or thesis are eligible to apply for this fellowship. Travel must be completed while the student is enrolled in a program at Stanford.
