Sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and CLAGS, the LGBTQ Scholars of Color Conference will gather a national group of LGBTQ people of color involved in research, evaluation, and scholarship. Our purpose is to build a vibrant network of LGBTQ Scholars of Color and to foster a pipeline for emerging LGBTQ Scholars of Color. Participants will have opportunities to be mentored by senior scholars, to meet others LGBTQ scholars of color from all over the country, and to gain skill sets in various areas (e.g., advanced methodological methods, grant writing, navigating the tenure process, etc.).
Participation at the LGBTQ Scholars of Color Conference is limited. We will review and select participants based on your submission so please be sure to complete the registration carefully. If you are selected to participate in the conference you will receive a confirmation of your registration with additional information and logistics details. The applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis. The first deadline for the first round of submission was January 15th. Accepted applicants will have an opportunity to submit an abstract for presentation (poster or oral) at the conference. Accepted applicants will also be eligible to participate in the Speed Mentoring Event where you will have the opportunity to speak to a senior scholar, evaluator or funder in your area of interest. The Speed Mentoring will take place on Friday, April 10th.
