Graduate Student Travel Awards
Each year, the Islamic Studies Program offers awards to support graduate student travel to conferences or for field and archival work. The Program usually offers a limited number of competitive awards each grant cycle. Award amounts vary and depend upon our budget. Travel awardees are selected based on need and relevance of the project to Islamic Studies (broadly defined).
All graduate students in good standing at IU Bloomington are eligible and encouraged to apply, although preference will be given to doctoral students. The Program requests that award recipients acknowledge our support in any product of their research, if applicable.
The deadline for the Spring 2021 funding cycle has passed. Please check back for future funding opportunities.
The Islamic Studies Program gave out eight awards in AY15-16, 12 awards in AY16-17, 16 awards in AY17-18, 24 awards in AY18-19, nine in AY19-20, and two in AY20-21. Graduate student awardees span the humanities and social science disciplines, geographic and time period areas of interest, and are enrolled in degree programs across the Departments and Schools of IU Bloomington.
