Initiated in 2017, the ASA Advocacy Travel Award provides travel subsidies of $1000 to ASA members to facilitate their attendance at advocacy events in Washington, DC each spring. The ASA believes it is critical for our members to be represented at advocacy events, and for the voices of the field of African Studies to be heard by representatives on the Hill as they prepare to make key decisions about funding for international education, the humanities, and higher-education as a whole.

Eligibility

Only ASA members are eligible to win the award.

If you have any questions about the ASA Advocacy Travel Award, please contact the ASA at kathryn@africanstudies.org
