Convention Opportunity Travel Grant

Thanks to our members who have donated to the Future of the Field, ASEEES is able to offer a limited number of travel grants to subsidize the travel of non-student members with income under $30,000 to present their papers at the ASEEES Annual Convention. Applications are judged on intellectual merit of the paper topic with a view to disciplinary and regional balances. 

Where possible, priority is given to first-time convention presenters or junior scholars who do not receive institutional support, such as those working as adjuncts or who are unemployed or underemployed. 


Applicant must be:

  1. A regular member of ASEEES at the membership level of income under $30,000 at time of application (affiliate, joint, and student members are not eligible to apply; a student member who graduates by the time of the application deadline must change his/her student membership to regular membership);
  2. Presenting a paper on a regular panel at the ASEEES Annual Convention (chairs, discussants, and roundtable participants are not eligible to apply);
  3. NOT a student at the time of application submission (graduate students from all parts of the world are encouraged to apply for the Graduate Student Travel Grants)
  4. NOT a permanent resident of: 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, who can apply for our Regional Scholar Travel Grants.
  5. NOT a recipient of a ASEEES Convention Opportunity travel grant in the last three years (eg, if you received the grant in 2022, you are not eligible again until 2025)

Grant Amount
