The Institute for European Studies aims to become a focal point at Cornell for an interdisciplinary European Studies research community. To this end, we are inviting applications for an inaugural cohort of 6-10 IES Graduate Fellows.

The IES Fellows will advance their research and participate in the European Studies community by regularly attending and engaging in IES-hosted talks in-person (about six talks per year), as well as by organizing and taking part in a graduate research workshop or discussion group, and in other collective activities.

The Institute will support these activities by providing a small ($500) research stipend to each Fellow. IES Fellows will also receive priority when applying for IES summer and semester research and travel fellowships.

Any graduate-level student across Cornell colleges and departments is eligible to apply if they will be enrolled in 2023-24.

To apply, please submit a brief proposal explaining your research interests and how they relate to European Studies (2 pages or less), as well as a C.V. and the name of one recommender (ideally the student’s dissertation adviser) who can provide details about the student’s academic promise and activities.

Applications are due February 3, 2023. Materials should be sent to the IES Program Manager Patricia Young at
