Meet the 2020 NASW Travel Fellows to AAAS

Congratulations to the 2020 NASW Travel Fellows to the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting, set for Feb. 13-15 in Seattle, Wash.

This is the first year NASW has offered these travel fellowships to graduate students.

The 2020 undergraduate fellows are:

  • Claire Bugos, Northwestern University
  • Kyle Chambers, University of Florida
  • Mitch Charlton, Western University
  • Emily Davis, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Learn more about NASW's student programs at the AAAS meeting, including opportunities for NASW members to serve as mentors.

Special thanks to the Education Committee members and to the many other NASW members who volunteer as mentors, editors, 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 not be possible.
