Wadad Kadi Travel Fellowships for Doctoral Students
The Wadad Kadi Travel Fellowships for Doctoral Students were established in 2014 and are designed to encourage graduate student participation in the MESA annual meeting.
Fellowships will be awarded in two categories:
1. Islamic Studies/History before 950 CE. Students enrolled in graduate programs who are presenting papers at MESA’s annual meeting in the fields of Islamic studies/history before 950 CE are eligible for these fellowships. Within this time frame the range of possible topics, source languages and methodologies is quite broad (e.g. archaeology, papyri, Late Antiquity, Christian sources, etc.; Arabic, Syriac, Greek, Coptic, Persian, etc.; and comparative work). Up to 7 fellowships will be awarded.
2. All other fields. Students enrolled in graduate programs who are presenting papers at MESA’s annual meeting in any field other than the above are eligible for these fellowships. The number of awards available will depend on how many awards are granted in category 1.
