airplane

The ASA and Student Forum Advisory Board are pleased to announce that the ASA Council is making funds available to support the Student Forum Travel Awards. ASA anticipates granting approximately 30 travel awards in the amount of $225 each. These awards will be made on a competitive basis and are intended to assist students by defraying the expenses associated with attending the ASA Annual Meeting. All applicants are encouraged to seek additional sources of funding to cover expenses associated with attending the meeting.

Applicants must be students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate sociology degree in an academic institution and a current student member of ASA at the time of application. Participation in the Annual Meeting program (e.g., paper sessions, roundtables), purpose for attending (e.g., workshop training, Honors Program participation), student financial need, availability of other forms of support, matching funds, and potential benefit to the student are among the factors taken into account in making awards. A travel award committee of the ASA Student Forum convened especially for this purpose will select awardees. 

To apply, complete the PDF file found online and email it to studentforum@asanet.org  or print out and mail one (1) hard copy of the Student Forum Travel Award Application form before April 1, 2012. The application can be found at www.asanet.org/funding/sfta.cfm2012.
