The RC28 meeting focuses on sociological research on social inequality, and this year’s meeting will focus on what sociological research can contribute to reducing inequality efforts. Funding from this grant will be used to support ten travel awards of up to $1,000 each, enabling graduate students of color in sociology and related social science disciplines who are interested in research on social inequality to attend the meeting. To be eligible for an award, applicants must have an undergraduate degree from a U.S. college or university. Awardees will be selected upon the basis of a CV, essay, and recommendation letter. These awards will help to strengthen the pipeline of researchers of color studying ways to reduce inequality in the United States.
