In an effort to encourage participation by underrepresented students in APPAM and its activities, the Policy Council and APPAM's Diversity Committee created the APPAM Equity & Inclusion Fellowship in 2016. Now, we are expanding the Equity & Inclusion Fellowship Program to include undergraduate students. We hope to introduce the field of public policy to undergraduates, who might not otherwise be familiar with it, as well as increase the pipeline of diverse students into APPAM institutional member graduate public policy and public affairs schools.
Undergraduate students enrolled at an institution of higher education within an APPAM Institutional Member School. Unsure if your school is an Institutional Member? Check here.
The nominee must be an undergraduate student at the time of the conference.
Students that received their bachelors degree prior to the 2022 APPAM Fall Conference are not eligible to apply.
Must be able to attend the 2022 APPAM Conference, November 17-19, in Washington, D.C. in-person.
