UCLA graduate students who will present papers with a European or Eurasian focus at conferences taking place between September and December 2014 may apply to CEES for travel funds if their departmental sources have already been exhausted. Students are eligible to receive up to $1,000 in travel funds over the course of two academic years. To apply for travel funds students must provide a documented airfare estimate from an airline, travel website, or UCLA Travel; abstract of the paper; a conference program or other proof that their paper has been accepted (maximum 5 pages); and a short electronic letter from the student's advisor indicating his or her endorsement of the student's participation in the conference. CEES travel funds may only be used to cover the cost of airfare. They do not cover hotel, conference registration fees, or ground transportation. Proof of payment for the ticket must be submitted at the completion of the trip in order for the reimbursement to be processed.
Project descriptions must demonstrate how the project will advance knowledge of European or Eurasian societies, histories, or cultures. Priority is given to projects that focus on the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, however, all projects of serious academic merit that focus on Europe or Eurasia will be considered.
