There is No Place Like Home... and Dorothy's Ruby Slippers | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

Having spent my childhood in Kansas, I’m all about Dorothy’s ruby slippers. There is in fact no place like home, and I’m proud to call APPAM my professional home for the past three plus decades. This will be APPAM’s 40th research conference—our ruby anniversary. Never has rigorous policy evidence been more important. We must continue to attract and support young professionals to grow and improve our field.


An Introduction to the National Poverty Fellows Program

September 12, 2013 09:00 AM

Timothy Smeeding, Director of the Institute for Research on Poverty (IRP) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, will conduct an information session about the National Poverty Fellows Program during APPAM's Professional Development Workshop (PDW) on Wednesday, November 6, 2013. The PDW will take place at the Washington Marriott in downtown Washington, DC from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

This exciting post-doctoral opportunity is developed and administered by the IRP in conjunction with two branches of the Department of Health and Human Services. Ajay Chaudry and Laura Chadwick from the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) and Mark Fucello and Molly Irwin of the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) in the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will be present to discuss the types of research they expect to be conducting, the types of researchers they are looking for, and to answer questions about this fellowship. The National Poverty Fellows program is open to post-docs up to six years post-Ph.D.
