AIMS invites North African scholars who have been selected to present a paper at the annual MESA meeting to apply for a travel award and stipend to the conference. In honor of the many years of his service to the Institute and his affection for the scholars of the Maghrib, the award is named the I. William Zartman Award. Once an applicant has been officially accepted to present at MESA, applicants should then submit the title and abstract of their selected paper along with a current CV to the AIMS Executive Office by August 31, 2017.
The award is intended for North African scholars living in North Africa. Scholars must be citizens of Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Mauritania, or Libya. If selected, scholars will receive an award to cover up to 1500 dollars in airfare, per diem for the duration of the conference, and MESA conference fees.
