Announcing the 2020 Equity and Inclusion Fellows

Since the 2020 APPAM Fall Conference is going virtual, the Equity and Inclusion Fellowship is also changing this year. APPAM has awarded 20 fellowships—instead of the usual 40-to be part recognized at the #2020APPAM Virtual Conference in November. 
The Equity & Inclusion Fellowship program supports the participation of students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at the Annual Fall Research Conference. The 20 Fellows will also have the opportunity to attend and be recognized at the 2021 APPAM Fall Research Conference in Austin, along with the 40 fellows that will be awarded in 2021.
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. Special thanks to the Equity & Inclusion Fellowship Selection Committee for reviewing applications and selecting the recipients.
We look forward to celebrating the 2020 Fellows at #2020APPAM virtual conference as well as in Austin for #2021APPAM!
The 2020 Fellowship Recipients page will feature bios of all the winners, as well as interviews and other digital content highlighting their work and backgrounds.
Congratulations to all the Equity & Inclusion Fellowship Recipients!
