Regional Scholar Travel Grant

ASEEES is able to offer a limited number of travel grants to subsidize the travel of faculty, research specialists, and independent scholars who permanently reside in Eastern Europe and Eurasia to present their papers at the ASEEES Annual Convention. Applications will be judged on intellectual merit of the paper topic with a view to disciplinary and regional balances. Where possible, priority will be given to candidates who are first-time convention presenters or junior scholars whose institutions offer limited funding. 

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

  1. A permanent resident and currently residing in any of the following countries: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Georgia, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, or Uzbekistan;
  2. Presenting a paper on a regular panel at the ASEES Annual Convention (chairs, discussants, and roundtable participants are not eligible to apply);
