American Sociological Association Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline

The American Sociological Association invites submissions by Ph.D. sociologists for the Fund for the Advancement of the Discipline (FAD) awards. Deadines: June 15, 2017 and December 15, 2017.

Supported by the American Sociological Association through a matching grant from the National Science Foundation, the goal of this project is to nurture the development of scientific knowledge by funding small, groundbreaking research initiatives and other important scientific research activities such as conferences. FAD awards provide scholars with small grants ($8,000 maximum) for innovative research that has the potential for challenging the discipline, stimulating new lines of research, and creating new networks of scientific collaboration.

The award is intended to provide opportunities for substantive and methodological breakthroughs, broaden the dissemination of scientific knowledge, and provide leverage for acquisition of additional research funds.
