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 2017 the grants will be awarded to graduate students for presentation of work on topics related to Southeastern European Studies at conferences in any field − including but not limited to history, linguistics, literature, anthropology, the arts, social and political science, folklore etc.

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 2017 grants are due to the selection committee by March 10, 2017. Applicants should submit their abstract –no less than 500 words −a CV, a short bibliography of their paper and the CFP of the conference where they plan to present as an email attachment to Bavjola Shatro [].
