As part of our mission to advance scholarship on contemporary European studies, the Center for European Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill supports working groups that foster both faculty research and graduate student mentoring in the profession. Every working group we fund has graduate student involvement and includes non-UNC members.
