Graduate Student Travel Awards Each year, the Islamic Studies Program offers awards to support graduate student travel to conferences or for field 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 fall AY2016-17 funding cycle has passed. We hope to have a new cycle of funding in the spring of 2017.
