Diversity Annual Conference Fellowships

One of the biggest barriers to attending the AAPOR annual conference is the high registration fee and hotel costs. The diversity fellowship would be targeted at historically underrepresented and disadvantaged people to help defray the cost of attendance. It would also pair each fellow with an experienced AAPOR member to help navigate the conference, with a few additional follow-up conversations throughout the year.
  • Short term actions:
    • Develop plan for defining and identifying fellows from historically underrepresented and disadvantaged groups and corresponding program accompanying this fellowship (mentoring, etc.)
 
  • Medium term actions:
    • Roll out fellowship program
 
  • Long term actions:
    • Evaluate efficacy of the fellowship program
