MEOC TRavel awards
The Middle East Outreach Council (MEOC) offers a limited number of $500 travel awards to provide support for MEOC members to attend the annual meeting of the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) and the MEOC teacher workshop and business meeting.
Workshop attendees generally get access to the MESA Film Festival and the MESA Book Exhibit, which are held at the host hotel.

An applicant must be a member of the Middle East Outreach Council and involved with teaching and/or outreach about the Middle East at any level.

Preference will be given to applicants who also plan to attend the MESA conference meetings. Recipients of the award will be asked to submit a short statement of how the award benefited them in their teaching and/or outreach work.
