Announcing MFP Cohort 45 for the 2018-2019 Academic Year

July 18, 2018

Congratulations to Our New Minority Fellows! Announcing MFP  Cohort 45

ASA is pleased to introduce seven new scholars who form Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) Cohort 45. These talented PhD candidates with strong and diverse sociological research interests were chosen from a highly competitive pool of applicants.

The MFP program provides a stipend, mentoring, and a cohort opportunity to predoctoral minority students. The new Fellows will attend the 2018 Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, where they will participate in a full program of professional development and networking activities. We invite you to attend the MFP Benefit Reception on Sunday, August 12 from 9:30-11:00 p.m. at Salon H, Level 5, of the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown to meet our new cohort of Fellows. Tickets can be purchased when registering for the Annual Meeting or at the door.

Since 2010, MFP has been generously supported on an annual basis by Sociologists for Women in Society, Alpha Kappa Delta, the Midwest Sociological Society, the Association of Black Sociologists, and the Southwestern Sociological Association, with more recent support coming from the Pacific Sociological Association and the Southern Sociological Society as well. The program has also benefitted substantially over the years from generous individual contributions, and  ASA is launching a new Campaign for Inclusion that will move us toward long-term sustainability of the program.

The new MFP Fellows are:

  • Rocío R. García
  • Bianca Gonzalez-Sobrino
  • Brooklynn Hitchens
  • May Lin
  • Katherine Maldonado
  • Corey Miles
  • Kelly Marie Ward
