Middle East Studies Research Travel Awards

Policies outlined on Brown's International Travel Risk Management Site must be adhered to. If the University reimposes travel restrictions due to the Covid pandemic, we will be required to suspend accepting submissions and expending these funds.

Middle East Studies Research Travel Awards are grants available to undergraduate and graduate students intended to defray some of the costs of transportation for research projects focused on the Middle East. Funding is available in two cycles every academic year, in the fall and in the spring. The parameters for our research travel funding is for the purpose of developing your research project, not for attending a conference or language classes that don't directly further research into the capstone or thesis project. Recent award recipients have used the funds for archival research, archaeological digs, ethnographic fieldwork, and furthering languages studies. 

Previous award recipients will not be considered for another research travel award for two years. At all times, preference will be given to someone who is applying for the first time.
