Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies Dissertation Research Grants

The Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies is sponsoring up to ten grants annually, at a maximum of $5000 each, for the purposes of conducting doctoral dissertation research in Eastern Europe and Eurasia in any aspect of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies in any discipline.
