The Jean Monnet Award for EU in Global Dialogue honours excellent BA, MA and PhD theses and encourages to continue their work and pursue subsequent research questions. At the same time, the award increases the visibility of EU studies within the participating universities and provides incentives for students to work on topics related to EU studies.
Students who completed their Bachelor, Master or doctoral thesis in the field of EU studies and EU’s role in the world at the universities of Darmstadt or Mainz are eligible to receive the award.
A jury, comprising of the Jean Monnet Chair holders Prof. Michèle Knodt (Darmstadt) and Prof. Arne Niemann (Mainz), one senior researcher, and one doctoral student, will evaluate the completed Bachelor, Master and doctoral theses in the field of EU studies that have a focus on the EU in global dialogue. The award ceremony will take place during the annual lecture.
