CIPA Fellow Jacquelyn Richards ’19 was one of 40 graduate students chosen from a pool of over 100 applicants to receive a 2018 Equity & Inclusion Fellowship from the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM). This fellowship supports the travel and participation of students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds at the 2018 APPAM Fall Research Conference, to be held November 8 to 10, in Washington, DC.

At the conference, Fellowship recipients will have the opportunity to formally network with each other and with members of the Policy Council and Diversity Committee at a networking reception and a Fellowship Luncheon, where they will be recognized for their accomplishments.

The goal of this Equity and Inclusion Fellowship program is to introduce recipients to the world of public policy and APPAM, and foster a lifelong affiliation and engagement with both.
