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 two graduate students annually presenting papers at the CAA Annual Conference and the ASEEES Annual Convention. The grant was first awarded in 2017 and will continue to be awarded through 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. 

The next SHERA Graduate Student Travel Grant will support a student presenting at ASEEES 2019 in San Francisco. Deadline to apply: June 1, 2019, with notification June 15, 2019.

GRANT AMOUNT: Up to $1,500 USD

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 under SHERA Business.
