The International Association for the Study of Persian-speaking Societies
is pleased to announce the continuation of our Travel Fellowship Program
by a grant from the Open Society Institute through 1999. Travel Fellowships
are available for scholars and researchers from Iran to take part in academic
and cultural conferences and conventions in the United States.
Each Travel Fellowship covers all travel and lodging expenses of the
recipient subject to a limit of $2500. The conditions for eligibility are
engagement in teaching or research in the humanities or social sciences
and an invitation or acceptance of a paper from the sponsors of the conference.
No special application form is required.
Applications must be received as long ahead of the time of travel as
possible, and no later than three months before the conference to be attended.
Those interested should submit a letter of application, together with a
curriculum vitae and the letter of acceptance from the appropriate convention
