Krupp Foundation Dissertation Research Fellowships

CES believes that a vital part of training future Europeanists is the ability to conduct fieldwork in the region associated with the research. Thanks to an endowment originally provided by the Krupp Foundation, the Center is able to provide a year of support to a large number of students for dissertation research abroad.
