QuotesBeing a fellow was an eye-opening experience because I had the ability to learn about different research topics from a variety of fields that were new to me. The diversity of presentations encouraged me to do two impactful things: draw parallels to the research I am currently doing and hear how presenters and audience members made sense of challenging topics, which helped my own understanding of the issue.

2018 APPAM Equity and Inclusion Fellowship

PRINT PAGE

E_I_banner_webThe 2018 Equity & Inclusion Fellowship will support the travel and participation of up to 40 students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at the 2018 APPAM Fall Research Conference, November 8 - 10, in Washington, DC. While at the conference, the fellowship recipients will have the opportunity to formally network with each other and with members of the Policy Council and Diversity Committee at a networking reception and the Fellowship Luncheon, recognizing them and their accomplishments.

They will also have many opportunities to informally network with other students and engage in mentoring activities with professionals during the conference. The goal of this fellowship program is to introduce recipients to the world of public policy and APPAM, and foster a lifelong affiliation and engagement with both.
