2013 MFP Call for Applications

Deadline: January 31, 2013

The ASA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) has existed since 1974 and has supported nearly 500 sociologists of color during this time span. MFP is supported by significant annual contributions from Sociologists for Women in Society, Alpha Kappa Delta, and the Midwest Sociological Society, along with the Association of Black Sociologists, the Southwestern Sociological Association, and numerous individual ASA members. Eligible applicants must be enrolled in (and have completed one full academic year) in a program that grants the Ph.D. in sociology at the time of applying. Applicants must be members of an underrepresented racial/ethnic minority group in the U.S. (e.g. Blacks/African-Americans, Hispanics/Latinos, Asians or Pacific Islanders, or American Indians/Alaska Natives). Applicants must also be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals of the U.S., or have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence. Application deadline is January 31st; notifications are made by April 30th. Fellowship is awarded for 12 months. Tuition and fees are arranged with the home department. Fellows are selected each year by the MFP Advisory Panel, a rotating, appointed group of senior scholars in sociology.
