In an effort to encourage participation by underrepresented students in APPAM and its activities, the Policy Council and APPAM’s Diversity Committee awarded the inaugural ‘APPAM Equity and Inclusion Fellowship’ to 25 students in 2016. Due to the success of the program, the number of fellowships increased to 35 for 2017.

The fellowship supports the travel and participation of these students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at the 2017 APPAM Fall Research Conference. APPAM received well over 100 applications - special thanks to the Equity & Inclusion Fellowship Selection Committee for reviewing every application.
