Emily Lucas Discussion

The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is offering multiple grant and award opportunities in conjunction with its Sixteenth Annual Conference taking place in Washington, D.C. on November 4 - 6, 2023.

Now in its tenth year, the ASMEA Research Grant Program seeks to support research on topics in Middle Eastern and African studies that deserve greater attention. Applicants may submit paper proposals on any topic as long as it constitutes new and original research and is relevant to the qualifying topic areas:

  • Minorities and Women
  • Military History
  • Governance and Economy
  • Faith

Grants of $2500 will be awarded. Successful research grant applicants are required to present their research at the Sixteenth Annual ASMEA Conference. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2023.

ASMEA is also offering Travel Grants of up to $750 which can be used towards the costs associated with attending the Annual ASMEA Conference in Washington, D.C. The deadline to apply is May 1, 2023.


In addition, we have issued our general Call for Papers and Panels and Call for Poster Proposals.

Grant and award opportunities are open to members only. For information on how to become a member and full guidelines on each program, visit our website at
