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 the presentation of papers at international, national, regional, or state conferences. In 2023, the grants will be awarded to graduate and undergraduate students for presentation of work on topics related to Southeast 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 undergraduate or graduate students in Southeast European Studies or a related field.

Students may receive only one SEESA Graduate Student Travel Grant over the course of their studies.

Applicants should submit an abstract of the paper of no fewer than 500 words, proof that the abstract has been accepted, a C.V., a short bibliography of their paper, and proof of student status as an email attachment to Bavjola Shatro [seesa.travel.grants@gmail.com]. Author name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information should be provided below the title of the paper.

Applicants who cannot submit proof of acceptance of their abstracts by March 10th because the conference where they plan to present has later deadlines for sending acceptance notifications, should contact SEESA’s Committee for Travel Grants at the email address given above before submitting their application in order to be given the necessary instructions to complete and submit their application for the SEESA Travel Grants.

The applications will be evaluated by SEESA’s Committee for Travel Grants. The quality of writing of the abstract as well as its content will be considered.

Questions about the grants may be directed to Bavjola Shatro.

Application Submission Deadline: March 10, 2023
