MEM Fellowship for Graduate Students of Color: Call for Applications
The Board of Directors of Middle East Medievalists (MEM) is pleased to announce the 2022 round of applications for our fellowship to support graduate students of color in medieval studies attending the annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA). This round is restricted to graduate students of color who are formally participating in the 2022 meeting and need help paying the MESA registration fee and travel expenses. In order to be considered in this round, please send a paragraph containing the following information to the MEM secretary (email@example.com): your graduate program/institutional affiliation; a description of the nature of your participation in the annual meeting (including paper and panel/roundtable information as approved by the MESA program committee); and any other sources of funding available to you. We will begin reviewing applications on Sept. 1 and will meet as much need as we can. If applications received by Sept. 1 exceed the amount we have available to disburse, we will choose randomly from the pool. Our plan is to send funds directly to recipients in advance of the annual meeting. If funds are left over after this round, we will announce another call for applications.
We hope that there will be future rounds to support travel to other conferences.
And if you would like to contribute to support this fellowship, you may do so at this link.
