The American Sociological Association has received a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in support of travel by U.S. sociologists to the XVII World Congress of the International Sociological Association (ISA) in Gothenburg, Sweden, July 11-17, 2010. Travel awards will be used to defray the costs of roundtrip airplane travel on U.S. carriers to the World Congress. The amounts of awards will vary, but no awardee will receive a grant in excess of the least expensive jet coach excursion fare from his/her gateway city to Gothenburg. This principle will enable the travel funds to support the highest possible number of grant recipients.
Eligibility requirements: To be eligible for support, you must:
Membership in ASA is NOT a requirement for the receipt of a travel award.
Recommendations for awards will be made by the ASA Travel Grant Selection Committee, which will be composed of senior sociological scholars, ASA leaders, and ASA Executive Officer (Principal Investigator). In ranking applications and making the general travel awards, the committee will focus on the nature, significance, and merit of the paper to be presented or on the role of the applicant to be played in the Congress. This includes an evaluation of the scientific contribution of the paper in the program session as well as the degree to which the paper (or role) represents a significant contribution to the program. In allocating these funds, attention will be paid to ensuring broad participation and to balancing applicant qualifications so that scholars at all levels of experience (graduate students, junior sociologists) and sociologists of color, women sociologists, and sociologists with disabilities receive travel support.
Applications: For the first time, applications for this travel support will be accepted online only. See www.asanet.org/forms/isa for instructions and to submit your application on to the secure website. Applications must be received by midnight EST on March 15, 2010.
The online application consists of two parts. Applicants for travel support are asked to provide:
