The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is offering research grants of up to $2500 to qualified professors and students engaged in the study of the Middle East and Africa.
To stimulate new and diverse lines of discourse about the Middle East and Africa, ASMEA’s Research Grants program seeks to support research on topics that deserve greater attention. The topic areas and sub-topics listed below are intended as a guide for participants in the program and constitute the types of subjects that ASMEA intends to support in this program. Applicants may submit paper proposals on any topic as long as it is relevant to the six broad areas outlined, and constitutes new and original research.
In addition, ASMEA announced the continuation of its Travel Grant Program for interested Ph.D. students, post-Docs, and junior faculty studying any facet of the Middle East and Africa region. Funds provided through this program may be used to cover expenses associated with attending the ASMEA Annual Conference.
The Seventh Annual ASMEA Conference titled, “Searching for Balance in the Middle East and Africa” will be held in Washington, D.C. October 30 -November 1, 2014.
