Fellows were selected in a competitive application process that garnered 90 applicants in 2019. The Fellowship provides a year-long program with training opportunities, complimentary SSP membership, registrations for selected SSP events (including the Annual Meeting), and travel reimbursement attend the Annual Meeting. A notable aspect of the program is the pairing of Fellows with an industry expert mentor. The mentors and mentees meet via quarterly webinars, in addition to communicating via email and telephone throughout the year.
“The Fellowship Program continues to attract high-quality applicants and has become increasingly competitive,” notes SSP Executive Director, Melanie Dolechek. “The Fellows have become an integral part of the Annual Meeting and our community at-large. The program is a great way for them to get involved, expand their network and learn additional skills that will help them excel in their future careers.
