To support graduate student scholarship and international participation in the field of Southeast European Studies, the Southeast European Studies Association (SEESA) has established the SEESA Travel Grants to subsidize travel costs for presentation of papers at international, national, regional, or state conferences. In 2016 the grants will be awarded to graduate students for attendance and presentation at The 20th Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore, which will take place at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City, UT, USA, April 28-30, 2016.
SEESA plans to fund, on a competitive basis, at least 2 annual awards of $500 each.
Applicants must be graduate students at either the master's or doctoral level in any of the fields of Southeast European Studies.
Students may only receive one SEESA Graduate Student Travel Grant over the course of their graduate studies.
Applications for the 2016 grants are due to the selection committee by March 10, 2016. Applicants should submit their paper and a short biographical note as an email attachment to Bavjola Shatro [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Author name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information should be written below the title of the paper.
The applications will be evaluated by SEESA’S Committee for Travel Grants.
Questions about the grants may be directed to Bavjola Shatro.
