Holzheimer Memorial Student Scholarship for Economic Development Planning
Submission deadline: January 20
The Economic Development Division annually solicits applications for the Holzheimer Memorial Student Scholarship for Economic Development Planning. Master's-level students enrolled in or recently graduated from PAB-accredited planning programs, or other current student or recently graduated APA early-career members, are eligible to apply. The application system generally opens in late November, with the deadline in January (subject to change).
The scholarship is named in memory of longtime APA member and economic development visionary, Dr. Terry Holzheimer of Arlington County, Virginia and Virginia Tech. The $2,000 award is a scholarship provided by the APA's Economic Development Division. Winners are strongly encouraged, but not required, to use the award money to support attendance at the APA National Planning Conference. The application materials should include an original student paper or work that is 2,500 words or less (including citations and footnotes), and must include the name and contact information of a faculty member involved in supervising the student and/or the submitted work.
