Senior Thesis Grants

Margot Mai '18 and Stergios Dinopoulos '17 were recipients of the CES senior thesis grants in 2017.

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 and Halbach Foundation in 1979 which established the Krupp Foundation Fellowships at CES. Grants must be used for research abroad during the summer break.

How to apply

In preparation for working on a senior thesis, students are encouraged to attend the Center's Senior Thesis Workshops. Students interested in applying for a senior thesis grant should submit the following documents via CARAT:

  • Cover letter (one page)
  • Resume
  • Unofficial transcript
  • One letter of recommendation
  • Budget

For additional funding, students may also consider applying for the Stanley H. Hoffmann Undergraduate Travel and Research Fund.

Grant Restrictions and Considerations

The application deadline has now passed. Applications for the 2018-2019 academic year will open in November.
