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 Harrison Travel Grants to subsidize travel costs for the presentation of papers at international, national, regional, or state conferences. In 2024, the grants will be awarded to graduate and undergraduate students for attendance and presentation at the 23rd Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore, which will take place at the University of Mississippi, in Oxford, U.S.A., on May 2-4, 2024.
SEESA plans to fund, on a competitive basis, 3 awards of $750 each.
Applicants must be undergraduate students or graduate students at either the master's or doctoral level in any field of Southeast European Studies.
Students may only receive one SEESA Harrison Travel Grant over the course of their undergraduate or graduate studies.
Applicants should submit their conference paper abstract 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 [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 the Harrison Travel Grants. Written quality of the abstract as well as its content will be considered.
Questions about the conference may be directed to Bavjola Shatro.
