Past Recipients

The Center aims to educate the next generation of scholars and researchers at the post-secondary level in fields relating to German and European Studies by supporting numerous students through competitive fellowships.  Between 1998 and 2016, the CGES UW-Madison alone has supported many students from 16 different departments. CGES offers lectures, lecture series, seminars, workshops, and conferences aimed at educating university students, developing their professional experiences, and offering them opportunities to make professional contacts outside of their own fields of study.
