ISM Fellowships Now Open

The application for ISM Fellowships is now open for the state, county, and municipal government human services agencies to apply for travel assistance to attend the ISM Conference & Expo. These Fellowships are intended for agencies that have very limited travel budgets.

Applications will be accepted through July 21 here or by clicking the button below.


Priority is given to states, counties, and municipal health and human services agencies that are dues-paying members of APHSA for the CIO, CTO, and other technology program directors to attend the conference. The fellowship can cover registration and up to three nights hotel at the conference hotel. There is a $500 stipend available to assist with airfare and/or train tickets, should an agency need that additional assistance. Agencies are encouraged to coordinate their applications as not all applicants can receive a fellowship.
