The European Union Center (EUC), established in fall 1998 through a grant from the European Commission, is another federally-funded National Resource Center that supports the activities of the Slavic Department, including instruction in BCS and Polish. Through its National Resource Center grant, the EUC is able to develop courses with EU content in undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs, provide support for conferences and workshops, and expand UIUC library resources on the EU. FLAS fellowships for regional languages can also be sought through the EUC.
