Subject: Grants & other opportunities for graduate students from ASEES

From ASEES:  Please share this list serv announcement with your grad
students:  Students are now able to apply for Davis Travel Grants and for
the Tucker/Cohen Prize.  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.  Directions for
self-nomination or for nomination by an ASEEES member are also below.

       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

       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.
