The deadline to apply for the 2024 Transnational Initiatives Fund is March 15, 2024.


The Society for the Study of Social Problems established the Transnational Initiatives Fund to help provide scholars located in those regions that fall under the definition of Global South with partial travel support to participate in the SSSP annual meeting. This includes economically disadvantaged countries and nation-states, as well as politically, economically, and culturally subjugated regions of all countries. Upon determination of need and expenses, the funding will be distributed among all qualified applicants.

Applicants may only apply to one travel fund. Students must apply to the Lee Student Support Fund. Non-U.S. based international scholars from politically, economically, and culturally oppressed groups in countries not considered part of the Global South must apply to the Lee Scholar Support Fund.


All online applications must be submitted no later than March 15, 2024. 

Please address all questions to:

Dr. Morena Tartari, Chair
Transnational Initiatives Committee
