Apply for the 2020 MFP Travel Grant

Given the APSA Annual Meeting will be held virtually, the current cycle of MFP travel grants will be more flexible to support the professional development of APSA Minority Fellows. We will accept applications from eligible MFP Fellows and Alumni who are planning on participating in the 2020 virtual meeting and those who have decided not to participate in the virtual meeting.

Virtual Meeting Attendees: Grants will be awarded to support indirect costs of participating in the virtual meeting, including supplementing the cost of internet access, technology upgrades, or other tools as needed. Fellows must register for the virtual meeting if requesting funds in this category.

Research and Development Grants: Grants may also be awarded to support fieldwork, research projects, or professional development for Fellows. Applicants will be asked to provide a description of their project if requesting funds in this category. Applicants applying in this category do not have to register for the virtual meeting.

Eligible applicants include:

  • Funded and unfunded APSA MFP Fellows from the fellowship class of 2019-2020 or prior, who are currently enrolled in a political science PhD program
  • Funded and unfunded APSA MFP Alumni who received their PhDs in political science between 2018–2020.

Awarded grants may range between $250-$400. 

NOTE: Priority will be given to APSA MFP Fellows and MFP Alumni who are current APSA members, who have not received (and who are not scheduled to receive) MFP funding during the 2019-2020 year, who are presenting a paper/poster or serving as a chair/discussant at the 2020 APSA Annual Meeting in Washington, DC or who are on the job market.
