Travel Scholarship Deadline Extended

NEW Deadline: February 1, 2014
Applications are invited from Master's level students enrolled in PAB-accredited planning departments in the United States, as well as individuals who have graduated from those programs in the past year. The $1,000 award is a travel scholarship provided by the Division to support attendance at the national APA meeting. The award will be decided on the basis of a letter of recommendation from a faculty member and an original student paper or work that is 2,500 words or less. The original student submission should speak to practitioners about a substantive topic related to economic development and planning in the United States.
The scholarship will be presented at APA's National Planning Conference in Atlanta, April 26-30, 2014. The paper will also be published on the Economic Development Division website and distributed electronically to division members.
