Evaluations of public programs in many fields reveal that different types of programs—or different versions of the same program—vary in their effectiveness.

APPAM provides policy students—from undergraduate to postdoctoral—the biggest opportunity to network with its annual Fall Research Conference. This year, the conference is in the picturesque western town of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We have scheduled several sessions and events with students in mind, and all of them provide excellent networking opportunities. With today's highly competitive job market, networking in the right circles often opens doors to new opportunities and jobs.
