The ASMEA Research Grant Program [asmea.nonprofitcms.org] seeks to support research on topics in Middle Eastern and African studies that deserve greater attention. Applicants may submit paper proposals on any topic as long as it is relevant to the five qualifying topic areas outlined on our website and constitutes new and original research. Grants of up to $2500 will be awarded. Successful research grant applicants are required to present their research at the Twelfth Annual ASMEA Conference and provide ASMEA the right of first refusal for potential publication in our peer-reviewed Journal of the Middle East and Africa.
Separately, ASMEA is offering two conference Travel Grant opportunities. The first is for scholars of the Middle East and the second is intended for scholars of Africa focused on the world of Islam, Islamism, and related issues in the continent. Funds provided through this program may be used to cover expenses associated with attending the ASMEA Annual Conference. Up to $750 will be awarded to successful applicants.
Applicants can apply for both grants but will only be awarded one. The application deadline for both grants is April 15, 2019.
