UCLA faculty affiliated with CERS may apply for funds which are to be used to organize events focusing on Europe/Russia or to support week-long visits by European/Russian scholars whose work focuses on Europe/Russia. Events and scholars with multidisciplinary appeal are especially welcome, as are those that may attract external funding or lead to future collaborations.
Priority is given to projects that focus on the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, new initiatives, and annual events in their first three years. However, all projects of serious academic merit that focus on Europe or Russia will be considered. Project descriptions must demonstrate how the project will advance knowledge of European or Russian societies, histories, or cultures.
All funds must be spent in the period for which they are awarded. Cost-sharing with other departments and programs is encouraged. Following the end of the grant period, recipients will be required to submit a brief activity and expense report.
Supporting documentation for both funding categories: two-page project description written in language that is accessible to non-specialist colleagues, itemized budget, CV(s) of visitor(s).
Requirements specific to each of the funding categories are outlined below:
Conferences, Workshops, Speaker Series
Award amount: up to $3000
Awards may cover round-trip flight, hotel, per diem, honorarium of up to $1000
Visitors will be expected to engage in the following events: a public lecture, a faculty workshop, and a graduate student workshop
