The Association for the Study of the Middle East and Africa (ASMEA) is
pleased to offer 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 is happy to announce 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.
