ISM Fellowship Application
The 49th ISM Annual Conference, an affiliate of the American Public Human Services Association (APSHA) will be held in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Convention Center September 18 - 21, 2016. The theme this year is Cool Solutions in the Valley of the Sun where we will continue to build on our commitment to transform the delivery of human services.
ISM is now accepting applications for fellowships during the fellowship application window of Monday, June 6 through Thursday, July 14. ISM will once again offer assistance for state and local government in the form of one or more fellowships to attend the 48th Annual ISM Conference in Phoenix.
Priority for fellowships will be given to state and local agency CEO's and their deputies, Chief Information Officers and their deputies, and Program Directors closely involved with technology projects, to attend the conference. These fellowships are meant to help those people who want to attend the conference but who cannot be reimbursed by their state or local government because of budget restrictions. If your agency can pay expenses, please allow those individuals to attend using agency funds, and allow our limited funds to be spent for those would benefit from the conference,but would not otherwise be able to attend.
