Web links and details about both of these awards are below. Additionally, ASEEES is looking for a Graduate Student Representative on the Board of Directors in 2012-13.

DAVIS STUDENT TRAVEL GRANTS
Deadline: April 15, 2011
Kathryn W. Davis's generous donation to our organization, combined with matching donations from ASEEES members, enables us to help subsidize travel costs for graduate students presenting papers at the 2011 ASEEES Convention. We are especially committed to subsidizing those graduate students who are attending the convention for the first time or who have no local institutional resources for travel support.
Grant Provisions: The Davis Graduate Student Travel Grant is a merit- and need-based open competition. This one-time award funds travel for graduate students presenting papers at the 2011 ASEEES Convention, which will be held in Washington, DC.
• Students working at either the master's or doctoral level in any field of Slavic, East European, or Eurasian Studies may apply;
• Citizens of any country may apply;
• All applicants must be members of ASEEES at the time of application.
Applications will be judged on intellectual merit with a broader view to disciplinary and regional balances. Preference is given to first-time presenters, though students who have presented in the past may also apply. Since our funding is limited and we wish to fund as many deserving applicants as possible, we urge applicants to be practical in estimating their travel and lodging budget. Please consider sharing a room with another graduate student at the convention hotel if feasible.
Deadline for applications: April 15, 2011. All applicants will be notified of their status by May 15, 2011.
Applications: All applicants must submit the following materials:
• Grant application form, found on our website;
• Curriculum vitae;
• Abstract of the paper to be presented at the convention;
• Tentative budget;
• Statement of need, describing anticipated travel costs and potential other sources of funding;
• Scholarly letter of reference from advisor or department chair which also includes confirmation that departmental and/or institutional conference travel funds are insufficient.
Application materials should be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR GRAD STUDENT REP ON ASEEES BOARD OF DIRECTORS, 2012-2013
ASEEES invites graduate students or their advisors to submit nominations for the position of Graduate Student Representative on the ASEEES Board of Directors. The Graduate Student Representative is a voting member of the Board of Directors, elected to serve a two-year term of 2012-2013.
Candidates for graduate student representative can self-nominate or be nominated by a faculty member who is a member of ASEEES. The Nominating Committee will review all nominations and select two to be candidates. Their names will be placed on the ASEEES ballot to be voted on by all ASEEES members.
All nominees for the position of ASEEES Graduate Student Representative should be doctoral students post-comprehensive examinations and in good academic standing. They may be in any academic discipline associated with Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies. Nominees also should be current ASEEES members and have a record of active contributions to the field outside of their department that demonstrates their initiative and engagement.
Please submit a current C.V. and a letter of reference from the nominee’s advisor or department chair. Materials should be sent by email to ASEEES@pitt.edu. All materials must be submitted to ASEEES by April 15, 2011.
The Robert C. Tucker/Stephen F. Cohen prize, sponsored by the JKW Foundation, is awarded annually (if there is a distinguished submission) for an outstanding English-language doctoral dissertation defended at an American or Canadian university in the tradition of historical political science and political history of Russia or the Soviet Union as practiced by Robert C. Tucker and Stephen F. Cohen.
The prize carries a $5,000 award intended to help the author turn the dissertation into a publishable manuscript.
The dissertation must be completed and defended during the calendar year prior to the award. The prize is awarded at the ASEEES Annual Convention in November.
Submissions are due April 15, 2011. More information about the Tucker/Cohen Prize (including eligibility requirements, prize committee contact information and list of past winners, can be found on the ASEEES website)
