Mellon Travel Awards for Faculty

Under a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, EURO has funding available to support participation in international and domestic conferences for IU Bloomington faculty presenting papers related to European Studies. Awards will not normally exceed $500 but may range from $100 to $1000. Formal papers are strongly prioritized over participation in roundtable discussions or lecture notes. Faculty who receive funding will be expected to present their research at a EURO–sponsored event following the trip. Faculty members can use the topic from their conference paper or talk about their current and future research. EURO will make room reservations and publicize the talk.

Deadlines: October 15 & April 1

Applicants must submit:

  1. Complete the EURO Faculty Request Travel Application.
  2. Documentation of paper acceptance for conference (please indicate if peer reviewed)
  3. A current curriculum vitae;
  4. A budget that includes other sources of funds that may be combined with the EURO award
  5. The paper presented indicating source of funding on the title page under "Acknowledgments" with your request for reimbursement

Please note:

  • Applications will only be considered from those who have not received a travel grant from EURO within the past year.
  • EURO will not pre-pay travel costs
  • Please submit application before conference date. EURO will not fund retroactively
