American Sociological Association (ASA) Minority Fellowship Program

December 8, 2015 Karen Popp FellowshipsMinorities

This graduate fellowship program offers up to three years of funding to minority students studying sociology with a focus on mental health issues and research. Students devoted to mental health and drug abuse research can receive an annual stipend of up to $20,772. The stipend can be renewed for three years and students are not required to repay the funds. However, this graduate fellowship does not cover the expenses of doctoral dissertations.

In addition to providing financial support, Minority Fellowship Program (MFP) works with its Fellows and their faculty mentors to help prepare the Fellow for a research career. Also, MFP plans workshops and paper sessions at the ASA Annual Meeting, offers travel support to scientific conferences, and fosters the development of formal and informal networks for Fellows.

Applications are reviewed and evaluated by the ASA Minority Fellowship Program Advisory Panel. Panel members are appointed by the ASA Executive Officer and approved by ASA Council. The Advisory Panel convenes annually in early spring to select finalists. Pending funding, the awards are announced by April 30.

Deadline: January 31st, 2016
