Through its Minority Fellowship Program (MFP), the American Sociological Association supports the development and training of sociologists of color in any sub-area or specialty in the discipline. Over 46 years, the MFP has supported more than 500 Fellows in pursuit of a doctoral degree in sociology. In addition to providing financial support, 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. Awards are announced by April 30. The annual stipend for each award (August 1- July 31) is $18,000. In addition, arrangements for the payments of tuition are made with universities or departments. Contact: (202) 247-9860; For more information, visit
