ASA Minority Fellowship (deadline: 1/31/22)

ASA provides a stipend of $18,000 for each annual award (August 1-July 31) and works with departments to try to arrange for the payment of tuition for the academic year. The Fellowship includes designated cohort programming at the ASA Annual Meeting, travel support for scientific conferences, and the opportunity to become part of a distinguished network of sociologists.

The Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) is designed for underrepresented minority students.  Specifically, applicants must be a member of one of the following underrepresented groups: Black/African American; Latino/a/x, American Indian or Alaskan Native; or Asian or Pacific Islander. Fellows must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence, or be eligible under DACA. MFP applicants must be enrolled in a program that grants the Ph.D. in sociology and be advanced in their program by the time of application.

MFP Fellows are selected on the basis of their commitment to research, the focus of their research experience, academic achievement, scholarship, writing ability, research potential, financial need, and racial/ethnic minority background.
