Information for Student Members:

The National Association for Ethnic Studies recognizes the value of its graduate and undergraduate student members, both as contributors to the organization and as the future of the discipline. We therefore encourage student involvement in several ways.

  • Discounted membership dues. Please see our online membership form for information
  • Discounted conference registration.
  • Student paper competitions for undergraduate and graduate students at each year’s conference.
  • Conference travel assistance. NAES is able to fund a number of modest travel grants to assist student presenters at the annual conference. The Ashton Welch travel award, funded by donations from the membership, was named in 2011 for our past Vice President who unexpectedly passed on in August 2010.
  • Opportunities for presentation and publication. Unlike some other academic organizations, we are proud of our recognized history as an informal and friendly quasi-academic body, while upholding high standards of scholarship. Undergraduate and Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals for our annual conference. Graduate students are invited to submit papers to our journal, the Ethnic Studies Review.
  • A seat on the Board of Directors is reserved exclusively for a graduate student. For more information about being a candidate for either the graduate student seat (two-year term), please contact the Secretary.
