NEW DEADLINE: FEB. 18th 2010!
The application deadline for the EDD Scholarship has been extended to Feb. 18th, 2010.
Master's level students from PAB-accredited planning departments across the U.S. may apply. The $1,000 scholarship is awarded on the basis of a letter of recommendation from a full-time faculty member and an original paper or work having to do with a substantive and relevant topic related to economic development and planning. We prefer an article length or shorter paper submitted (not a thesis, although a shorter paper developed from the thesis is acceptable) of 2,000 to 2,500 words.
The application should be addressed to:
John Provo, Ph.D.
Office of Economic Development (0373)
Outreach and International Affairs
702 University City Blvd.
Blacksburg, VA 24061
The scholarship will be presented at the APA National Planning Conference in New Orleans in April 2010, and the paper will be published in EDD’s News & Views.
