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 2019 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 awards of $500 each.
Applicants must be graduate students at either the master’s or doctoral level in any field of Southeast European Studies.
Students may receive only one SEESA Graduate Student Travel Grant over the course of their graduate 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 [firstname.lastname@example.org], Associate Professor of Contemporary Albanian Literature and World Literature within the Aleksander Moisiu University. Author name(s), affiliation(s), and contact information should be written below the title of the paper.
Applicants who cannot submit proof of acceptance of their abstracts by March 10th as the conference where they aim to present have later deadlines 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 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. Written quality of the abstract as well as its content will be considered.
