Martin P. Levine Memorial Dissertation Fellowship

The Martin Levine Memorial Dissertation Award was established to honor the memory of Martin Levine, who died of AIDS in 1993.  It provides $3,000 to a graduate student (and $500 to an honorable mention) in the final stages of dissertation research and writing, who is working on those topics to which Levine devoted his career: 1) the sociology of sexualities, 2) the sociology of homosexuality, and 3) HIV/AIDS research.  It is designed to help students complete their dissertations, and as such the committee evaluates dissertation proposals rather than completed work. In accordance with ASA policy, all award nominees must be current members of the association in order to be considered. In addition, nominees must join the section if they are not already members. Send your proposals to: Michael Kimmel (michael_kimmel@yahoo.com), Department of Sociology, SUNY at Stony Brook, Stony Brook, NY 11794.

The deadline for submissions is April 1, 2015.
