UCLA graduate students who will present papers with a European or Eurasian focus at conferences taking place between January and March 2015 may apply to CEES for travel funds if their departmental sources have already been exhausted.

Project descriptions must demonstrate how the project will advance knowledge of European or Eurasian societies, histories, or cultures. Priority is given to projects that focus on the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, however, all projects of serious academic merit that focus on Europe or Eurasia will be considered.
