NASW Travel Fellows to AAAS

Congratulations to this year's NASW Travel Fellows. These 10 undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds and educational institutions were selected by the NASW Education Committee to attend this year's AAAS annual meeting Feb. 16-20, in Boston. Each fellow will receive up to $800 to assist with travel. Fellows will each write a story for publication on the NASW website, and participate in the NASW mentoring program and NASW internship fair.

Special thanks to Education Committee co-chairs Czerne Reid and Ashley Yeager for coordinating the travel fellowship and mentoring program, and to committee member Erik Vance for coordinating the internship fair. Thanks also to the many 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.
