Scholarships Available to Support AICP Applicants

Are you interested in becoming AICP certified, but are concerned about the application costs? APA California is offering a limited number of scholarships to support individuals pursuing certification. Planners from diverse backgrounds and with a demonstrated financial hardship will receive priority funding. Scholarship recipients will receive a discount code that will reduce the cost of the AICP application, essays, and exam. For example, the standard certification process costs a total of $510, and recipients would pay a reduced fee of only $210.

Please review the online application for more information:

Applications are due by Wednesday, February 24, but will be reviewed on a continuous basis. Scholarship recipients will be notified before the end of February.
