For Graduate Students

Graduate education is a strategic priority at the Nanovic Institute. Our graduate students interact with undergraduates, inspire and advise them, and help attract the best faculty to Notre Dame.

Graduate education is where the future of European studies is made. How will its rising stars be prepared? How well-grounded will they be in European scholarship? How should they be introduced to professional life, and to a network of scholars?

The Nanovic supports graduate education through a range of grant programs, fellowships, and conferences. It connects them to other students and faculty and fosters their professional development.

All Graduate Grant applications for 2018/19 graduate grants will re-open August 6th.
