grant information

CREEES is pleased to announce the Globalizing Eurasia Grant for multi-country summer research. Undergraduate and graduate students who plan to conduct research in two or more countries in Russia, Central and East Europe, the Caucasus, or Central Asia or in this region and another are welcome to apply. Projects might involve, for example, travel in Russia and China, the Caucasus and Turkey, or some other combination of countries. Recipients will be awarded up to $7000 in funding.



To be considered for a Globalizing Eurasia Grant, an applicant must be enrolled as an undergraduate or in a graduate program or professional school at Stanford and plan to continue their studies in the following academic year.

The Globalizing Eurasia Grant does not prohibit a student from receiving another fellowship during the grant award period, but students are prohibited from receiving fellowship funds for the same travel and research expenses. For instance, the Globalizing Eurasia Grant will not pay for airfare if the other funding source covers the student's same expenses. A Globalizing Eurasia Grant will not be awarded to a student who is receiving sufficient support from another funding source.



APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2016 ARE open. DEADLINE: February 22, 2016
