Royal Air Maroc-ASA Student Travel Award

The Royal Air Maroc-African Studies Association Student Travel Award aims to facilitate and increase the movement of students and the exchange of ideas, between students of African Studies in Africa and the United States. The overarching aim of the award is to acknowledge outstanding scholarship by future African Studies scholars. The award, which consists of complimentary airline tickets between the United States and any Royal Air Maroc (RAM) destination in Africa (a list of destinations can be found on the RAM website), is given every year at the ASA's Annual Meeting.

Each year, several tickets will be awarded to competitively selected students who have displayed outstanding scholarship in their area of study. Award tickets may be used to facilitate research, study abroad, and/or travel home for African students studying in the United States.
