The Lee Ann Fujii Travel Grant supports APSA Diversity Fellows’ (formerly Minority Fellows) participation in the APSA Annual Meeting to encourage engagement with research, professional development, mentoring, and collaboration. Among other factors, priority is given to individuals whose research, teaching, or mentoring focuses in the areas of political violence, ethnicity and race, African politics, racial violence in the US South, comparative politics, international relations, conflict processes, research ethics, or qualitative and interpretive methods.
The grant is named for Dr. Lee Ann Fujii (1962-2018), a highly respected scholar of political violence, ethnicity and race, African politics, field methods and comparative politics. The grant is made possible through generous contributions to the APSA Lee Ann Fujii Travel Grant Fund. Learn more about Dr. Fujii’s legacy here.
APSA awarded six individuals the 2020 Lee Ann Fujii Travel Grant. As the 2020 Annual Meeting was held virtually, recipients were able to utilize funds to support their virtual participation in the meeting. Learn more about the grant recipients here.
