Travel Grants

ASA is pleased to provide travel grants (up to $250 USD) to attend the 2023 Assyrian Studies Symposium to U.S. graduate students and international graduate students studying in the U.S. Travel grants will only be available to those who plan to present their original research and/or attend workshops at the 2023 Assyrian Studies Association Symposium in-person. 


They can cover costs of travel to the Symposium such as mileage for attendees who travel by car or plane tickets for attendees who arrive in Stanford by air.  Grants can also cover hotels, meals, and Symposium related cab / rideshare fares.
