Financial support for graduate students

The Association for Borderlands Studies is glad to announce that financial support is available for both Master's and PhD students who actively participate in the ABS World Conference 2018. In order to promote and support global participation in the World Conference, ABS will award up to 250 Euro for students attending from within Europe and up to 500 Euro for those traveling from overseas.

Awards will be distributed among the best abstracts that are submitted online by graduate students until September 30th. In order to be eligible, students must present a paper and are expected to participate in the full conference. The recipients will be selected by members of the Scientific Committee and will be contacted individually in late 2017.

We ask that students cover their expenses individually, and will be reimbursed in Vienna/Budapest after having signed the necessary documents to prevent funding no-shows. We hope that this will serve to encourage graduate students from across the globe to participate in ABS World 2018 and look forward to receiving your applications.
