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 2016 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: 

  1. 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 
  2. A curriculum vitae 

Please send your application by Wednesday, September 14 to Ralina Joseph, chair of the Critical Ethnic Studies Committee.
