Diversity Travel Grants (to attend the RSS Annual Meeting)
Diversity Travel grants of up to $750 per person will be awarded to 1) help defray the costs of attending the annual Rural Sociological Society (RSS) meeting and 2) cover the cost of one year membership. Applicants may be either professionals or students from under-represented minority groups within RSS (i.e. African American, Asian-Americans, Latino/a, American Indian/Native American or other recognized minority) and/or from tribal college, HBCU or community college faculty. The applicant must be on the meeting program. Priority for awarding these competitive grants will be given to applicants who have not received travel funds in the past and who lack financial support from other sources. Applications will be reviewed by the Diversity Committee and awards will be presented to recipients upon arrival at the RSS annual meeting.
Applications are due by March 30, 2012. Applications may be submitted electronically using the Diversity Travel Grant application form below. Successful applicants will receive notification by May 15, 2012.
