CES Small Event Grants support workshops, lectures, symposia and other small events that share research on Europe with a wider community. Individuals affiliated with CES member institutions are eligible to apply for grants ranging from $300 to $1500.
Grants are awarded twice a year, in January for events taking place in the Spring semester, and July for events taking place in the Fall semester. A multi-disciplinary selection committee chooses winners and awards grants based on proposed event budgets and available funds. Any institution that receives a grant must agree to brand the event as “sponsored by the Council for European Studies” and provide an audio-visual or other record of the event. CES also provides promotional support for events either fully or partially funded by this program.
Each applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Be a representative or otherwise affiliated with an institution that is a member of the CES Academic Consortium
- Submit an application, promotional plan, budget, and description of the event
- The event may not be affiliated with the International Conference of Europeanists organized by CES.
