APA Diversity Scholarship

Open Until June 1, 2023

The APA Foundation awards scholarships to make the planning profession more diverse and accessible to those with financial need. Diversity is an inclusive concept which encompasses, but is not limited to race, ethnicity, class, gender, age, sexuality, ability, educational attainment, spiritual beliefs, creed, culture, tribal affiliation, nationality, immigration status, political beliefs, and veteran status. Scholarship awards are made to students currently enrolled in planning degree programs.

For the 2023 cycle, we will be awarding 10 scholarships at $5,000 each. Eligible applicants include women, people of color and indigenous descent, veterans, disabled persons, and members of the LGBTQIA+ community who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate Planning Accreditation Board-approved programs. Applicants must be APA members; membership for students is free.

The Selection Committee will meet in July to review applications.
