APA Orange Section is offering a limited number of conference stipends to current students and young planners! We want to encourage our Section members to attend the 2016 APA California Conference from October 22-25 in Pasadena. Stipends are available for those of you unable to have your workplace cover the conference fees, or if you are a student with limited funds to spare. Stipend recipients will be selected based on financial need and a demonstrated desire to attend this year’s conference.We are offering full-conference registration fee stipends for the following rates:
Student: $150 – By registering for this rate, you are certifying that you are currently enrolled full-time or graduating June 2016. Conference sessions only. Does not include Opening Reception event.
Young Planner $375 – To qualify, you must not be out of school more than 6 years and be under 35 years of age and be enrolled in APA’s Early Career Program (ECP).
If you do not qualify for either of these categories but are selected as a recipient, APA Orange Section will provide a stipend up to $375 and you will need to pay the difference in the registration fee. This stipend does not include any reimbursement for travel expenses.
You must be an APA Orange Section member to qualify.
Applications are due Friday, October 7 by 11:59 PM and we will notify stipend recipients promptly. Once notified, stipend recipients must purchase the conference registration in advance online and APA will provide a reimbursement check in the mail. Stipends would be paid with proof of conference registration, and the recipient will need to email APA Orange Section a copy of the registration receipt.
For more information, please contact Belinda Deines, Vice Director of Professional Development, at (949) 464-6626 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
