The European Studies program (EUS) provides grants to graduate and undergraduate students via the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCE). For the past several years, students have been conducting field research in Europe and/or participating in experiential learning programs such as the EU Study Tour (EUS 390) thanks to the grant funding available through the JMCE.

The Jean Monnet EU Centre of Excellence funds students and post-doctoral student fieldwork and conference attendance in Europe on EU integration topics. Each year (2017, 2018, 2019) there are up to nine (9) graduate student grants and six (6) EU Study Tour grants available. Students receiving the graduate student grants must present their research upon returning to UVic.

2019 Deadlines: March 15

Please apply for 2019 grants here and email your completed application to eusprog@uvic.ca ahead of the deadlines noted above.
