Washington Center for Equitably Growth Doctoral/Postdoctoral Grants (deadline: 3/21/22)

Equitable Growth will consider research proposals looking at the effects of the coronavirus recession and ongoing pandemic if the outcomes of interest will be relevant to future recessions.

Doctoral/postdoctoral grants are open to graduate students currently enrolled in a doctoral program at a U.S. university and to recent Ph.D. graduates currently in a postdoctoral position at a U.S. university. If you are currently a graduate student or in a postdoctoral position, you may choose to apply for either an academic or doctoral/postdoctoral grant, depending on the pool in which you’d like to compete.

International students at U.S. universities are eligible to apply, though if awarded the grant would likely need to be administered through the university. International students are advised to communicate their intention to apply with their institution to ensure adherence to institutional protocol if funded.

Doctoral/postdoctoral grants are funded at $15,000 over 1 year.

Just Tech Fellowship (deadline: 1/2/22)

The Just Tech Fellowship is a remote, two-year, full-time research fellowship that invests in a diverse community of researchers and practitioners who will identify and challenge injustices emerging from new technologies and identify solutions that advance social, political, and economic rights.

The Just Tech Fellowship is designed not only to support a researcher’s work but also to invest in their entire person and build a supportive community. The fellowship offers two-year unrestricted awards of $100,000 per year with the intention of opening space, time, and resources for fellows as they envision and enact more just technological futures. The awards are augmented by robust supplementary funding packages to subsidize dependent care, health care, work space, technical equipment, project materials, communications, or other needs.

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.
