AICP Exam Scholarships Available

2021 Reduced Exam Fee Diversity Scholarship

APA Ohio is committed to fostering equity, diversity, and inclusion in the organization and in the planning profession. Diversity is an inclusive concept which encompasses, but not is not limited to race, ethnicity, class, gender, age, sexuality, ability, educational attainment, spiritual beliefs, creed, culture, tribal affiliation, nationality, immigration status, political beliefs, and veteran status.

If you self-identify with an under-represented population, you may be eligible for a 2021 AICP Certification Diversity Scholarship.

The next round of scholarships is for the March 2021 exam window (register/apply in December 2020) and is worth up to $300 in reduced exam fees. Both AICP Candidates and standard AICP applicants are eligible for the scholarship.

If you qualify, please submit a brief letter describing how you identify with any of the diverse populations listed above.

This program was put into place by APA to make the planning profession more diverse and accessible to those with financial need.

Fine Print:

  • The awarding of a scholarship does not guarantee that a recipient will be approved to take the AICP Exam. The exam application will be evaluated like any other. 
  • If you should be awarded a scholarship but have already paid the exam fee, APA will reimburse you.
  • AICP Candidate participants will be considered last, as the fee to sit for the exam is already greatly reduced.


Submit a written scholarship request to APA Ohio at no later than November 27, 2020.
