2018 Diversity Travel Award

The Rural Sociological Society (RSS) and the Committee on Diversity are pleased to announce that travel awards are available to support the attendance and participation of minority participants at the annual conference to be held in Portland, Oregon. These awards will be awarded on a competitive basis and are meant to assist participants in defraying costs associated with attending the RSS meeting.

We anticipate granting awards at the minimum amount of $500 per recipient or at a maximum amount of $750; however, the amount of funds and the number of awards may fluctuate depending on the number of applications and the need described therein.
