The Western Association for Slavic Studies is a regional affiliate of the American Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, the principal scholarly organization in the world for these areas of interest.  The Western Association for Slavic Studies encourages not only leading academics in the field, but especially graduate students to attend the conference.  The WASS offers a $100 prize for the best graduate paper presented at the conference, and are also eligible the ASEEES’s and the WSSA’s graduate student paper prizes.
