The ASA Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) has existed since 1974 and celebrated its 35th anniversary year in 2008-09. For the 2014-15 MFP Fellowship award year, 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. 

MFP applicants can be new or continuing graduate students in sociology, who are enrolled in a program that grants the PhD. All MFP applicants must be members of an underrepresented racial/ethnic minority group in the United States (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. The application deadline is January 31; notifications are made by April 30. The Fellowship is awarded for 12 months and may be renewable. Tuition and fees are arranged with the home department. 

MFP Fellows are selected each year by the MFP Advisory Panel, a rotating, appointed group of senior scholars in sociology. Fellows can be involved in any area of sociological research. For more information or an application, visit the ASA website and click on “Funding” or contact the ASA Minority Affairs Program at minority.affairs@asanet.org.
