Encourage Students to Apply to the ASA Honors Program

ASA encourages faculty members to invite undergraduate sociology students to apply for the 2021 Honors Program, which helps students get introduced to the professional life of the discipline. Accepted students will benefit from experiencing the virtual 2021 ASA Annual Meeting and developing long-lasting networks with sociologists. Sponsoring departments can provide a wonderful opportunity for their students to engage nationally. 

Nominations from sociology faculty members are required for students to participate in the Honors Program. Students are required to submit online their completed applications, including the faculty nomination letter, by February 18, 2021.

The Honors Program is proud of its partnership with Alpha Kappa Delta, the International Sociology Honor Society. The three winners of the AKD Undergraduate Student Paper Competition are automatically eligible to be part of the Honors Program.
