APPAM Awards 25 Student Fellowships to Fall Research Conference

Students will be hosted and honored during the annual event

WASHINGTON, DC (September 9, 2016) — The Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM) is pleased to announce that it has recently granted 25 students with the Equity and Inclusion Fellowship. The grant allows recipients to attend the association’s annual Fall Research Conference. 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 Fellowship Breakfast, recognizing them, their accomplishments and bright futures. They will also have many opportunities to informally network with other students and professionals during the conference. The APPAM Diversity Committee received nearly 100 applications submitted by Master's and Ph.D. students from schools around the world.

The Equity and Inclusion Fellowship was created in April 2016 by the APPAM Policy Council and Diversity Committee in an effort to encourage participation by underrepresented students in APPAM and its activities. 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.

“I am thrilled that APPAM provided both financial and staff resources to create and support the fellowship,” said John Martinez, Director of Program Development at MDRC and Chair of the APPAM Policy Council’s Diversity Committee. “This demonstrates the association’s strong commitment to equity and inclusion not only within APPAM but also in the field of public policy analysis and management more broadly. The caliber of fellowship recipients is exceptional, and I am confident that they will benefit personally as participants in the APPAM Fall Research Conference and that their participation will make this year’s conference that much stronger.”
