Stanford Global Studies is pleased to announce two new research grant opportunities for Stanford graduate students: The Parveen Hassan and Ritva Heikkila Fund for International Research and The Europe Center's Graduate Internship and Research Program in Germany.
In 2017, the Stanford Global Studies Division received a gift in honor of Parveen Hassan, ’56 and Ritva Heikkila, ’56, who came to Stanford as Fulbright scholars from Pakistan and Finland, respectively.
Across departments—political science, and speech and drama—and cultural differences, they became friends and stayed in touch until Heikkila’s death in 2016. This fund to support international research opportunities for master’s students, with a preference for cross-cultural research, honors their lifelong friendship.
Current or incoming graduate students who are enrolled in Stanford Global Studies M.A. programs are eligible to apply for awards up to $5,000. Research must occur over spring break.
Deadline: Monday, February 5, 2018
The Europe Center, with support of the Stanford Club of Germany, is sponsoring graduate internships and research visits with German companies and research institutes in the summer of 2018. The objective of this program is to provide opportunities for Stanford graduate students to spend 8-12 weeks in Germany pursuing internships or performing research at local institutions.
Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded by The Europe Center for each placement to cover the cost of travel and basic living expenses. Interns will be required to submit a three-page report of their experience two weeks after their return.
Deadline: Thursday, February 1, 2018
