Ongoing Programs

Regional Conferences and Events Funding Program

The Greater Boston area's many intellectual centers offer IMES students unique enrichment opportunities. To encourage and help student take advantage of the diverse events, conferences, and lectures offered at other schools, the IMES program is delighted to reimburse the cost of public transportation for students who attend these events. How does the program work? 

  • Current IMES students are encouraged to find Middle East-related programs in the area (see links below).
  • See an event you want to go to? Email the IMES program for approval.
  • Upon completion, students will submit their receipts and receive reimbursement for the cost of public transportation and registration fee, if applicable.
  • If the event is not accessible by public transportation, the program will pay for a ride-sharing app car up to $20.
  • Pre-approval is required.

Events are available at BC, Tufts, Harvard, and BU
