ASA Minority Fellowship Program is open to new or continuing minority graduate students. Applicants must be applying to or enrolled in sociology departments with a strong focus on mental health research programs.

Applicants must be members of one of the following racial/ethnic groups: Blacks/African Americans, Latinos (Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans), American Indians or Alaskan Natives, and Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Southeast Asian), or Pacific Islanders (Hawaiian, Guamanian, Samoan, Filipino). The fellowship includes a stipend and some funding for travel to the ASA Annual Meeting each August, regional or association meetings in the spring or fall, and professional development training programs and workshops.

Eligible students must be minority students entering a doctoral program in sociology for the first time or for those who are in the early stages of their graduate programs. Fellows are selected based on their commitment to research in mental health and mental illness, academic achievement, scholarship, writing ability, research potential, financial need, and racial/ethnic minority background.

The American Sociological Association (ASA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the discipline and profession of sociology. Members work in academia, government, business, or non-profit organizations. The organization was founded in 1905 and is located in Washington, D.C.

The purpose of the fellowship is to create more diversity leadership roles in research by attracting talented doctoral minority students.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $18,000.
