Through its Minority Fellowship Program (MFP), the American Sociological Association (ASA) supports the training of sociologists of color in any sub-area or specialty in the discipline. MFP selects talented doctoral students to ensure that a diverse workforce can assume leadership roles in research that is relevant to today’s global society. In addition to providing financial support, MFP works with Fellows and their faculty mentors to prepare the Fellow for a research career. MFP plans workshops and paper sessions at the ASA Annual Meeting, offers travel support to scientific conferences, and fosters the development of Fellows' formal and informal networks.

The Minority Fellowship Program is primarily, but not solely, designed for minority students sufficiently advanced in their Ph.D. program to demonstrate their commitment to a research career. MFP Fellows are selected on the basis of their commitment to research, the focus of their research experience, academic achievement, scholarship, writing ability, research potential, financial need, and racial/ethnic minority background.
