Racial/Ethnic Minority Graduate Fellowship

Since 1995 the SSSP has given an annual Minority Graduate Scholarship to a recipient who demonstrates significant achievements through active engagement with social problems, participation in social problems solutions, and advancement of knowledge through study, service, and critical analysis, and in recognition of and a desire to address the effects of institutional racism in the academy. Starting in 2016, two fellowships are awarded annually. At the 2017 Annual Meeting, the Board of Directors voted to change the scholarship to a fellowship.
