Fall 2013 Deadline: June 1, 2013
Spring 2014 Deadline: August 1, 2013

European Union Center Scholars in Residence

The European Union Center is soliciting applications from European and American scholars of the EU to serve as Scholars in Residence at the University of Illinois (UI). This opportunity allows for research and professional development for visiting scholars, strengthening ties between the EU Center and departments with similar goals in the U.S. and EU. Visitors will also benefit from the University of Illinois’ world class library system, working with the Center’s MA students and affiliated doctoral students, and partnering with leading faculty in various EU fields. Scholars should utilize their time at UI to work in collaboration with EUC faculty affiliates on relevant EU-focused research projects and to develop and improve courses and lectures on EU topics.

Request for Proposals

For information about current and former EUC Visiting Scholars, see our Visiting Scholars page.
