Haas Fund Fellowship

The EUSA Haas Fund Fellowship Competition is an annual fellowship for graduate student EU-related dissertation research. Thanks entirely to contributions to our Ernst Haas Memorial Fund for EU Studies, launched in June 2003 to honor the memory of Ernst B. Haas (1924-2003) we will offer at least one fellowship per year of a minimum of  $2000 to support the dissertation research of any graduate student pursuing an EU-related dissertation topic. Information on how to apply for the Haas fellowship will be made available on the EUSA home page by early Fall of every year (see below).

Please note the following stipulations for applicants, who must:

  • be pursuing the doctoral degree (PhD) at an accredited institution in any country;
  • be writing a dissertation in English;
  • have an EU-related, doctoral dissertation topic approved by the professor who will supervise it; and,
  • be able to demonstrate clearly the relevance to EU studies of the dissertation topic.

Applicants for this Fellowship should submit:

(1) A CV;

(2) A 200 word description of the dissertation research project that explains its relevance to EU studies;

(3) A 100 word statement that specifies how the fellowship would be used.

(4) And ask for two letters of support to be sent directly to EUSA. These letters should be from professors serving on the student’s dissertation committee, and one should be the chair. They MUST be sent as a pdf attachment to eusa@pitt.edu with the subject line EUSA Haas Prize.

Please submit applications for the 2024 fellowship online (see link to the right). The deadline for applications to be received is November 6, 2023.
