Funding to Support Travel to the 2019 Annual Meeting in New York

Student Forum Travel Awards 

Deadline: April 1st

Student Forum Travel Awards are meant to assist students by defraying the expenses associated with attending the ASA Annual Meeting.

Eligibility Requirements

To apply, one must be pursuing an undergraduate or graduate sociology degree in an accredited academic institution and a student member of ASA at the time of application. Participation in the Annual Meeting program (e.g., paper sessions, roundtables), purpose for attending (e.g., workshop training, Honors Program participation), financial need, availability of other forms of support, matching funds, and potential benefit to the student are among the factors taken into account in making awards.

Application

To apply, please see the Student Forum Travel Award on the ASA website. Applications will only be accepted through this online portal. Decisions will be announced by May 15.

For more information, contact Rebekah Smith at (202) 247-9861 or studentforum@asanet.org

Annual Meeting Travel Fund 

Deadline: April 1st

The Annual Meeting Travel Fund (AMTF) is designed to help offset some of the costs associated with the Annual Meeting for sociologists who would otherwise find it difficult to attend. Over time the fund will make it possible for more sociologists to benefit from the professional development that the Annual Meeting provides, including those in contingent positions or who are working in under-resourced institutions, those who incur additional costs when traveling due to a disability, and international scholars who face prohibitive costs for attending the meeting.  

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must be listed in the Annual Meeting program to be considered for funding. ASA membership is required for applicants who reside in the United States; this requirement is waived for international applicants.  Students are not eligible for the Annual Meeting Travel Fund and instead are encouraged to apply for a Student Forum Travel Award.  Extent and type of annual meeting participation, current income level, and availability of alternative sources of support will be considered in making awards.

Application

To apply, please see the Annual Meeting Travel Fund on the ASA website. Applications will only be accepted through this online portal. Decisions will be announced by May 15.
