Call for Posters and Undergraduate Travel Grant Opportunities

ASMEA is pleased to offer its Poster Presentation Competition for undergraduate students at its Fourteenth Annual Conference.

In addition, a Travel Grant program will run in conjunction with the Poster Competition. Up to $500 will be awarded. Those interested in applying for a Travel Grant will first need to become undergraduate student members to apply. Learn more here.

Presenting a poster is an excellent opportunity for young scholars to show their work in a visual format, promote discussion about their chosen subject, interact with seasoned academics, and receive feedback about their projects. 

Information for Applicants:

  • Applicants must be juniors or seniors in the Fall 2021 academic year.
  • Interested students must submit an application via the online submission portal and include a 300-word abstract of original unpublished data.
  • Topics must be related to the Middle East and/or Africa.
  • Poster presentations may be made in-person or online.
  • To submit a poster proposal, students do not need to be members, however, to apply for the Travel Grant in conjunction with the poster proposal, applicants will need to become undergraduate student members.
  • To apply for the Travel Grant, a student will need to submit a letter of reference from an advisor.
  • The deadline to submit is October 15, 2021.

Successful applicants will be required to register for the Conference. Posters will be judged by how well the presenter demonstrates understanding of their subject matter as well as by the clarity of their presentation. More submission details and guidelines for final poster projects will be made available to confirmed participants.
