Russian Scholar Travel Grant

Thanks to a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York and other institutions, ASEEES is able to offer 16 or more travel grants of $1000 each to subsidize the travel of faculty, research specialists, independent scholars, and advanced graduate students who are Russian citizens and permanent residents of Russia to present their panel papers or speak on a roundtable at the 2021 ASEEES Annual Convention in New Orleans, LA. Applications will be judged on intellectual merit of the presentation topic with a view to disciplinary balance. Where possible, priority will be given to candidates who are first-time ASEEES convention presenters or junior faculty and advanced graduate students whose institutions offer limited funding. Panel paper presenters will be given priority over roundtable speakers. 

Up to $1,000 USD plus convention registration and 2021 ASEEES membership

  3. Can be an advanced graduate student who is enrolled in a doctoral program at a Russian institute of higher education
