Fellowships & Funding: Davis Student Travel Grant

Deadline: April 15, 2013

Kathryn W. Davis’s generous donation to our organization, combined with matching donations from Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) members, enables us to help subsidize travel costs for graduate students presenting papers at the 2013 ASEEES Convention. We are especially committed to subsidizing those graduate students who are attending the convention for the first time or who have no local institutional resources for travel support. Students may only receive ONE Davis Graduate Travel Grant over the course of their graduate studies.

The Davis Graduate Student Travel Grant is a merit- and need-based open competition. This one-time award funds travel for graduate students presenting papers at the 2013 ASEEES Convention.
Applications will be judged on intellectual merit with a broader view to disciplinary and regional balances. Preference is given to first-time presenters, though students who have presented in the past may also apply. Since our funding is limited and we wish to fund as many deserving applicants as possible, we urge applicants to be practical in estimating their travel and lodging budget. Please consider sharing a room with another graduate student at the convention hotel if feasible.
