AAR-SE 2023 Graduate Student Funding Award

The AAR-SE Regional Board will grant ten $200 awards to qualifying graduate students for the 2023 regional meeting. By providing these awards, AAR-SE hopes to foster graduate student development and alleviate the financial burden of traveling for emerging scholars. Graduate students who meet the following criteria are welcome to apply:

    1. Those who are scheduled to present
    2. Those who need to travel for the conference (i.e., is not a student of the hosting school)

The first ten graduate students who apply and also meet the above requirements will be granted awards. Awarded at the conference. Checks awarded.


Previous Update:
Due to the Society of Biblical Literature’s decision to end their sponsorship of local regions, our Southeast Region is no longer associated with the Society of Biblical Literature in any way. As a region, we value all regional members (faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, and public) who work within the field of biblical studies. We will continue to host our Biblical Studies sections (Old Testament/Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Apocryphal & Pseudepigrapha Literature, and Dead Sea Scrolls), which were previously considered part of the Society of Biblical Literature Southeast Region. These sections will now be referred to as Biblical Studies sections. The leadership of these sections remains unchanged, and we value and welcome the introduction of new Biblical Studies sections based on the interest of our membership.
We look forward to a wonderful 2023 conference hosted by Mercer University in Atlanta, Georgia.

The AAR Southeast Region’s Annual Conference will meet in person in March 2023 hosted by Mercer University at their Atlanta campus, you can access our 2023 call for papers here and find our link for submissions here  (due October 28th).
