ASA Student Forum Travel Awards


Saturday, April 1, 2017

The American Sociological Association’s Student Forum was established in 1998 as a means to represent its student members’ voices, ideas, and opinions. The ASA Council is making funds available to support the Student Forum Travel Awards. ASA anticipates granting approximately 25 travel awards in the amount of $225 each. These awards will be made on a competitive basis and are meant to assist students by defraying the expenses associated with attending the ASA Annual Meeting. All applicants are encouraged to seek additional sources of funding to cover expenses associated with attending the Annual Meeting.

Applicants must be students pursuing an undergraduate or graduate sociology degree in an academic institution and a current 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), student 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. A travel award committee of the ASA Student Forum convened especially for this purpose will select awardees.

To apply, students are asked to complete the online application form. The deadline is April 1st. More information can be found on the ASA website.
