CCP Student Awarded Fulbright-Schuman Scholarship
The CCP would like to congratulate Francesca Vantaggiato, one of our PhD students, who has been awarded a Fulbright-Schuman scholarship to study in the United States.
The Fulbright-Schuman Program in European Affairs allows for students, academics, professionals and policy makers from the EU to travel to US institutions in order to engage in research/study of topics of interest to US-EU relations. Around 35 scholarships are awarded each year to students from across the European Union. Co-financed by the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission and the US Department of State, the maximum value of the scholarship is €29,000.
The scholarship will allow Francesca to study at Georgetown University and continue her doctoral research on the politics of regulatory networks in the energy sector. Francesca’s supervisor, Dr Chris Hanretty, said that the award was a “sign of just how talented Francesca is and how her research will help us understand why regulators from different countries team up to form networks”.
Well done Francesca!
