Luigi Einaudi Chair Innovation Grant

Cornell Sky at Sunrise

This annual grant program is designed to encourage and integrate innovative research and teaching in the area of European Studies.


Successful applications include opportunities that:

  • Promote the interdisciplinary study of Europe and cross boundaries between the social sciences and the humanities in ways that enhance the classroom experience of Cornell students and/or provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
  • Bring visitors to campus in conjunction with a course.
  • Engage graduate students and undergraduates in research or in implementing project activities.


Tenured and tenure-track faculty, lecturers, and research associates at Cornell are eligible to apply, as are programs, centers, and libraries within the University. Although individual projects are acceptable, collaborative proposals are especially encouraged.
