SHERA Graduate Student Travel Grant

Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous donor, the SHERA Graduate Student Travel Grant helps defray travel costs for one graduate student presenting a paper at the CAA Annual Conference and the ASEEES Annual Convention. The grant is given for five consecutive years (2017-2021), alternating between the CAA conferences and the ASEEES conventions, beginning with CAA 2017 in New York City. The alternating order of the subsequent grants is as follows: ASEEES 2018, CAA 2019, ASEEES 2020, CAA 2021. Applications will be evaluated based on the academic merit of the paper topic and financial need. SHERA is especially committed to subsidizing a graduate student who is attending the conference for the first time or who has no local institutional resources for travel support. Calls for application will be posted to H-SHERA.


All applicants must be:
1. A student working at either the master's or doctoral level with a thesis or dissertation topic related to Eastern European, Eurasian and/or Russian art and/or Architecture;
2. Presenting a paper contributing to advancement in this field at a panel at a CAA Annual Conference (chairs, discussants, and any other type of participants are not eligible to apply) or ASEEES Annual Convention; 
3. A member of SHERA at the time of application;
4. Live outside the conference city;
5. Have not been recipients of this grant in the past.

Deadlines and application instructions will be shared in advance on the H-SHERA network.
