Regional Scholar Travel Grant

ASEEES is able to offer a limited number of travel grants up to $1,000 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

Grant applications will be judged on intellectual merit of the paper topic with a view to disciplinary and regional balance. Where possible, priority will be given to candidates who are first-time convention presenters or junior scholars whose institutions offer limited funding.

  • 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 (For 2024, those who are displaced outside the above countries due to Russia’s war in Ukraine are also eligible);
  • Presenting a paper on a regular panel at the ASEEES Annual Convention (chairs, discussants, and roundtable participants are not eligible to apply);
