The George Washington University is a member of the The American Consortium on European Union Studies (ACES), along with four other national-capital area universities: American University, George Mason University, Georgetown University, and Johns Hopkins University. The purpose of ACES is to improve understanding of the European Union and US-EU relations throughout the Washington, DC-Northern Virginia-Baltimore region. ACES has been recognized by the European Commission as a European Union Center of Excellence in the United States.
The American Consortium on European Union Studies (ACES) awards research seed grants and working paper grants in order to support theory- and policy-oriented research with an emphasis on the European Union, its member states, US-EU transatlantic relations, and other contemporary EU-related issues.
ACES' multidisciplinary focus encourages analysis and policy dialogue on these topics in a variety of fields, including political science, economics, business, finance, law, science and technology, public health, and others.
