Congratulations to the 2019 NASW Travel Fellows to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting, Feb. 14-17 in Washington, D.C. These 10 undergraduate students from around the U.S. were selected by the NASW Education Committee from a competitive pool of applicants. Travel fellows will each write a story for publication on the ScienceWriters website and participate in the NASW Mentoring Program and Internship Fair.

The travel fellows are:

  • Courtney Adams, Texas A&M University
  • Shelby Condit, Colorado State University
  • Ana Flores, St. Edward's University
  • Mary-Elizabeth Jobson, University of Florida
  • Elizabeth Ladyzhets, Barnard College
  • Jodie Lunger, University of Toronto
  • Adam Peasley, Austin Community College

  • Taylor White, Suffolk University
  • Shelby Whitehead, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Special thanks to the Education Committee members and to the many other NASW members who volunteer as editors, mentors, speakers, and assistants. Without the generous gift of your time, expertise and goodwill, these signature programs, which are a highlight for students each year, would be impossible.

  • Ashley Yeager (Co-chair and Travel Fellowship co-coordinator)
  • Erik Vance (Internship fair coordinator)
  • Rachel Butch
  • Jenny Cutraro
