About the Student Forum
The American Sociological Association’s Student Forum was established in 1998 as a means to represent its student members’ voices, ideas, and opinions. The Student Forum provides various resources for both graduate and undergraduate sociology students, while also helping students establish networks, and encouraging their professional development. Individuals who join the ASA as student members will automatically become members of the Student Forum and will receive mailings and electronic communication from the Student Forum Advisory Board (SFAB). For more information about the Student Forum, please click here.
The ASA and Student Forum Advisory Board are pleased to announce that 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. A link to the application form will be made available no later than February 1, 2016. Starting in 2016 applications will only be accepted through the online application program. Decisions will be announced by May 15th. Only applications from individuals on their own behalf will be accepted.
