CfA: ASEEES Dissertation Research Grant and the new Civil Society in Russia Research Grant
The Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) is calling for applications to two research grant opportunities for graduate students enrolled in US institutions: the ASEEES Dissertation Research Grant and the new Civil Society in Russia Research Grant.
Thanks to the generosity of our members and other donors to the Future of the Field campaign, we are able to increase the number of Dissertation Research Grants from 10 to up to 16 and increase the maximum grant amount from $5,000 to $6,000 this year. Please consider making a contribution or a multi-year pledge. Your contribution will have an immediate impact.
We thank the US-Russia Foundation for a grant to support the Civil Society in Russia Research Grant program.
Please help us distribute the following announcement as widely as possible. Thank you.
ASEEES Dissertation Research Grant
The Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies is sponsoring up to 16 grants annually, at a maximum of $6,000 each, for the purposes of conducting doctoral dissertation research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia in any aspect of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies in any discipline.
The applicant must achieve PhD candidacy (ABD status) before the start of the research trip, must possess language proficiency necessary to conduct the proposed research, be a member of ASEEES at the time of application, and plan to begin their research no later than January 31, 2020. These awards may be held concurrently with other partial funding sources, but are not intended to support students whose projects have already been fully supported. The grant may not be held at the same time as the Fulbright Hays DDRA, Cohen-Tucker Dissertation Research Fellowship, or other similarly fully-funded dissertation research fellowships.
Thanks to generous gifts, we are thrilled to be offering several new grants within the framework of the ASEEES Dissertation Research Grant. The Dissertation Research Grant in Women and Gender Studies (open to all disciplines and geographic foci in Eastern Europe and Eurasia); Dissertation Research Grant in LGBTQ Studies (open to all disciplines and geographic foci in Eastern Europe and Eurasia); and the Joseph Bradley and Christine Ruane Dissertation Research Grant (open to all disciplines and any aspect of Russian studies broadly defined).

Civil Society in Russia Research Grant
With support from the US-Russia Foundation, ASEEES is sponsoring grants with stipends up to $6,000 for the purposes of conducting graduate research related to the rule of law, governance, economy, business, and civil society in Russia. These grants are intended to provide opportunities for young scholars to make connections with Russian peers and senior specialists, promoting long-term professional relations, and to foster the next generation of Russia experts.
Graduate students in MA programs and professional schools are strongly encouraged to apply. PhD students at the predissertation level may apply for pre-dissertation research.
Applicants must be MA, PhD or professional school students enrolled at a US university. Applicants may be of any nationality but should be members of ASEEES at the time of application and possess language proficiency necessary to conduct proposed research, which must be conducted in Russia and begin no later than January 31, 2020.
