The Minority and Indigenous Graduate Student Travel Grant award (co-sponsored by the Critical Ethnic Studies and Minority Scholars Committees) will provide travel reimbursement of $500 to an advanced graduate student who is a member of the ASA and plans to attend the 2017 convention in order to present a paper related to critical ethnic and/or indigenous studies. Graduate students who have no support for convention attendance and are members of an under-represented group are particularly encouraged to apply.
The application should have two parts:
- A cover letter of no more than two pages that includes a brief autobiographical description, the title of the applicant’s paper and the session to which it belongs, and confirmation that the applicant will not receive any other financial support from his/her/their institution
- A curriculum vitae
