ASA Awarded Grant for Travel Support to the ISA World Congress
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has announced that an award of $49,500 has been made to the American Sociological Association in support of travel by sociologists in the United States to the XVII International Sociological Association (ISA) World Congress of Sociology to be held in Gothenburg, Sweden, from July 11-17, 2010. The theme of the 2010 World Congress is "Sociology on the Move." See www.isa-sociology.org/congress2010/#.
As it did with previous NSF awards to support travel to ISA World Congresses, ASA will administer the grant, including placing announcements for the competition, accepting applications, evaluating individual requests for travel awards, selecting recipients, and distributing the funds.
Competitive criteria for an award include an invitation from or acceptance of a paper at the Congress, the scientific merit of the paper, and the qualification of the applicant. Watch for further information on how to apply for travel support on these Footnotes pages and on the ASA Web site www.asanet.org later this spring.
