You can also indicate your willingness to volunteer as chair or discussant.

Call for Applications: NEW ASEEES Internship Grant Program

Thanks to the generous support of the US-Russia Foundation, ASEEES is pleased to announce the new Internship Grant Program.

This program provides MA, PhD, and professional school students and recent graduates with grants that make it possible for them to accept unpaid or underpaid internships in areas directly related to Russian studies. The program promotes the entry of young scholars with considerable Russian studies expertise into sectors outside of traditional academia. These internships must be in the US and should be substantial in duration and responsibilities, lasting two months for summer internships and four months for internships during a semester in the regular academic year. The grant offers $2,000 a month, to be paid directly to the grantee during their internship. ASEEES is also working to secure funding for a similar program to support internships related to non-Russian aspects of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies.

*Please help us disseminate the information about this new program by sharing this announcement with any interested graduate students and recent graduates.

Deadline: January 13, 2020

The program is open to US students in PhD programs at US and Canadian universities.  We thank the KAT Charitable Foundation for its support of the program.
