CES offers summer research travel grants for senior thesis writers to explore topics on political, historical, economic, social, cultural, and intellectual trends in modern or contemporary Europe. The grants in the amount of $5,000 are made possible thanks to a generous endowment provided by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach Foundation in 1979 which established the "Krupp Foundation Fellowships in European Studies" at CES. Grants must be used for research abroad during the summer break.
Three CES Senior Thesis Grant Recipients Sara Bobok, Emily Brothers and Julia Fine were awarded the prestigious Thomas Temple Hoopes Prize for their outstanding research. These students spent their junior summer in Europe to conduct research for their senior thesis and were nominated by their advisors including Maya Jasanoff, CES Resident Faculty, and Nicolas Prevelakis, CES Local Affiliate.
