Scholarships help talented planning students reach their educational goals. Photo by Jacob Ammentorp Lund.

The APA Foundation assists students by providing educational financing and paid internships in recovery and rebuilding efforts.

The goals of these scholarships are to make the planning profession more accessible to individuals with limited means and to attract the best, brightest, and most talented individuals to the planning profession. By providing scholarships to students of great merit and from historically underrepresented groups we make our profession more representative of — and therefore more responsive to — the diverse communities it serves.

Below are examples of scholarships supported by the APA Foundation's Scholarships Initiative.
