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.
