SEESA TRAVEL GRANTS
To support undergraduate and 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 2019 the grants will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students for presentation of their 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, and folklore.
SEESA plans to fund, on a competitive basis, at least 2 awards of $500 each.
Applicants must be students. They may be studying at the undergraduate, master's or doctoral level and in any field of Southeast European Studies. Students may receive only one SEESA Graduate Student Travel Grant over the course of their undergraduate and graduate studies.
Applicants should submit an abstract of their paper of no fewer than 500 words, proof that their paper has been accepted for presentation, a C.V., a short bibliography of their paper and proof of student status as an email attachment to Bavjola Shatro . Author’s name, affiliation, and contact information should be written below the title of the paper.
Applicants who cannot submit proof of acceptance of their papers by October 1st because the conference at which they plan to present has a later deadline for sending acceptance notifications, should contact SEESA’s Committee for Travel Grants at the email address mentioned above before submitting their application in order to receive additional instructions for completing and submitting their application.
Applications will be evaluated by SEESA’S Committee for Travel Grants. The written quality of an abstract will be a factor in its consideration.
Questions about the grants may be directed to Bavjola Shatro at the email address given above.
