This Fund supports a travel grant of $500 for a student to attend the annual meeting of the Society. The Del Jones Travel Award is intended to increase minority participation in Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA), particularly African American participation. Applicants must have submitted a paper abstract which has been accepted for the annual meeting program. Students who are presenting a poster are not eligible. Applicants must have also been enrolled as a student during some part of the current year. Following the contributions of Del's professional life, the abstract (and paper) should be concerned with efforts to assist and transform the lives of oppressed or disadvantaged people. 2021 update: Due to changing the annual meeting to virtual format, SfAA will not be offering the Student Travel Awards for 2021. Check back next year for grant availability.
