UALR Middle Eastern Studies program seeking grant applications

University of Arkansas at Little Rock

University of Arkansas at Little Rock faculty and students are invited to apply for grants to support activities and scholarship in Middle Eastern studies. 

The Middle Eastern Studies Program will award student grants of up to $2,500, faculty grants up to $3,000, and adjunct faculty grants up to $500.

Faculty and students are encouraged to think creatively about the activities the grants could fund. Projects related to any aspect of the Middle East or Middle Eastern studies are eligible. Faculty and students from all majors and departments are encouraged to apply.

Examples of student grants include participation in an archaeological expedition in a Middle Eastern country, historical research, a summer language study program, study abroad in a Middle Eastern country, and internships. Faculty grants have supported such activities as the creation of new courses, bringing a speaker to campus, and research activities.

The committee will begin reviewing applications on Feb. 3, 2017. Applications can be submitted until May 15, 2017, or until all available funds have been awarded.

All grant recipients must deliver a public program on their project for the campus community and submit a report documenting how the funds were used by Jan. 31, 2018.
