APA Foundation Scolarships

Scholarships available

APA Foundation Scholarships advance social equity in the profession and in our communities. Women, people of color and indigenous descent, veterans, disabled persons, and members of the LGBTQ community who are currently enrolled in Planning Accreditation Board-approved programs are encouraged to apply. Applications for both APA Foundation Scholarships and the Charles Abrams Scholarship will be accepted through June 20.

President’s Challenge goal exceeded

The APA Foundation raised more than $27,000 at NPC19, exceeding the goal of APA President Kurt Christiansen’s Fundraising Challenge. In addition to funding student scholarships, donations to the Foundation help resource-limited and disaster-affected communities and support research that equips planners to help communities plan for the future.

Video wins top award

The Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts honored the APA Foundation video, “We the Planners Believe,” with a 2019 Communicator Award of Distinction. The Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals.

Congratulations to the APA Foundation team!
