To honor the memory of history Professor Gerald D. Feldman — particularly his dedication to graduate students — the Institute for European Studies has established the Gerald D. and Norma Feldman Graduate Student Fellowship. In 1994, Gerald Feldman took over the UC Center for German and European Studies, a research center that served the ten campuses of the University of California and in 2000 the Center became part of the newly formed Institute of European Studies. Under his leadership from 1994 to 2006, both the Center and the Institute provided generous funding for students and faculty whose research focused on Europe. The creation of this Fellowship will help sustain the formidable legacy left by the Institute’s former Director.
This fellowship is in the amount of $3,000 and is open to students at UC Berkeley writing their dissertations on topics related to Europe and the European Union. Topics should focus on political, historical, economic, social, cultural, and intellectual issues, or public policy in contemporary Europe. Recipients must be advanced to candidacy. The fellowship may be used to supplement external grants. Please use our online application form to apply for this grant. The deadline for submitting applications is February 1.
