Thanks to a generous donation from an anonymous donor, the Society of Historians of Eastern European, Eurasian, and Russian Art and Architecture (SHERA) Graduate Student / Independent Scholar Travel Grant helps defray travel costs for two graduate students or independent scholars annually presenting papers at either the CAA Annual Conference or the ASEEES Annual Convention. The grant was first awarded in 2017 and will continue to be awarded through 2021. 

The next SHERA Graduate Student / Independent Scholar Travel Grant of up to $1,000 for local travel and up to $1,500 for international travel will be awarded to one member presenting a paper at the CAA Annual Convention being held in Chicago from February 12-15, 2020.
