News archive - ASEEES announces new Regional Scholar Travel Grant program for the ASEEES annual convention

The Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), a nonprofit, non-political, scholarly society, is the leading private organization in the world dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about the former Soviet Union (including Eurasia) and Eastern and Central Europe.

As a reflection of the changing demographic profile of the association, and the increasing number of members who travel to our convention from the world area we study, ASEEES introduces a new Regional Scholar Travel Grant program to subsidize the travel of faculty, policy specialists, and independent scholars from Eurasia and eastern Europe to participate in the ASEEES annual convention. (Advanced graduate students from all parts of the world are encouraged to apply for the Davis Student Travel Grants.)

Grant Amount:

Up to $1,000 USD plus convention registration fee waiver
