The Student Forum of the American Sociological Association (ASA) administers student travel awards to the ASA Annual Meeting. We anticipate granting approximately 25 awards in the amount of $200 each. These awards are made on a competitive basis and are meant to assist students by defraying costs associated with attending the Annual Meeting. All applicants should seek additional sources of funding to attend the Annual Meeting.
The application must be submitted no later than April 1st. Decisions will be announced no later than May 15th. Only applications from individuals on their own behalf will be accepted.
Applicants must be students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in an academic institution and a current member of ASA (at the time of applying). Participation in the Annual Meeting (e.g., paper sessions, roundtables) and purpose for attending the Annual Meeting (e.g. workshops, Honors Program participation) are among factors taken into account in making awards.
Awardees will be selected by the appropriate travel award committee of the Student Forum Advisory Board.
