AASECT is excited to announce a scholarship available this year to help offset the cost of attending the 2019 AASECT Institute. The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Scholarship is designed to expand access to the Institute for underrepresented and marginalized communities within AASECT membership. 

The scholarship includes complimentary admission to the three-day Institute and $750 to cover travel and room/board expenses.  Those interested in applying to the DEI Scholarship must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a current member of AASECT at any level, student members and early career professionals are encouraged to apply.

  • Identify as a member of an underrepresented, underserved, or marginalized community- as you define it.

  • Identify any financial barriers that would prevent regular participation in the Institute

  • Be willing to write a brief statement (no more than two pages) about how you meet the criteria of the scholarship, your interest in the theme of the Institute, and how you would use the information gained at the institute to further your work in the field of Sexuality.

The AASECT Board of Directors and DEI committee thank you for your interest and look forward to reviewing your submission.

Submissions are due Monday, September 23rd and the scholarship award winner will be notified by October 1st, 2019. Please send your submission to
