The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is offering two grant opportunities in conjunction with its Fifteenth Annual Conference taking place in Washington, D.C. on November 5 - 7, 2022.

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 five qualifying topic areas: Minorities and Women, Military History, Governance and Economy, Faith, and Iran. Grants of up to $2500 will be awarded. Successful research grant applicants are required to present their research at the Fifteenth Annual ASMEA Conference. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2022.

Separately, ASMEA is 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 April 15, 2022.

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