We have exciting news to share: In cooperation with the Leibniz-ScienceCampus Europe and America we are launching a new prize for the best master's thesis in Area Studies.
On top of prize money, the winners will also have the chance to publish their work with the ScienceCampus. And there will be a nice certificate to go on your wall, too!

The prize is open for all students who completed their law, teaching, or master's degree at the University of Regensburg between summer semester 2019 and summer semester 2020.

The call for applications is available here (in German).

The Regensburg European American Forum (REAF), in cooperation with the Center for International and Transnational Area Studies (CITAS), is honored to invite the UR community to explore our growing collection of “Transnational Perspectives on the Pandemic.”

The ongoing project presents videos by international scholars who speak about their take on COVID-19. To view the first contributions from the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Israel, and the United States, please visit the project on GRIPS   (Sprach/Lit/Kult > Anglistik/Amerikanistik > Regensburg European American Forum > Transnational Perspectives on the Pandemic)
