The American Sociological Association Student Forum is pleased to announce that the ASA Council is making funds available to support student travel awards to the ASA Annual Meeting. ASA anticipates granting approximately 30 travel awards in the amount of $225 each. These awards will be made on a competitive basis and are meant to assist students by defraying expenses associated with attending the 2017 ASA Annual Meeting. All applicants are encouraged to seek additional sources of funding to cover other expenses.
When TRAILS launched in May 2010, a group of talented and dedicated sociologists volunteered to serve on the inaugural team of area editors. These scholar-teachers were part of the team that worked to make TRAILS what it is today. In addition to reviewing the very first resources that would soon grow to a database of nearly 3,500 peer-reviewed, innovative teaching materials, they were also fierce advocates of the teaching and learning community. They were instrumental in creating a disciplinary culture where quality teaching is standard.
