April 30 – ASMEA Grants

The ASMEA Research Grant Program [] 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 Fourteenth 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 Travel Grants [] of up to $750 which can be used towards the costs associated with attending the  Annual ASMEA Conference in Washington, D.C.

Applicants can apply for both grants but will only be awarded one. The application deadline for both grants is April 30, 2021.

Additional guidelines and information as well as the online application for the Research Grant []Travel Grant []Paper Proposals and Panel Proposals [] can be found on our website at [].
