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 2020 there will be two rounds of applications. During the first round, the grants will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students for presentation of their work at the 22nd Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore which will take place at the Arizona State University (ASU), in Tempe, Arizona on April 2 - April 4, 2020. Information regarding the second round of application will be announced in May 2020.
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.
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.
