ACSP-POCIG Scholarship for Travel to the ACSP Annual Conference

The Planners of Color Interest Group will provide scholarships for the ACSP Annual Conference. Each scholarship will be in the amount of $250 USD to support the student's travel. We are particularly interested in encouraging young scholars to attend this conference. Providing an introduction to the planning academy, the conference is a venue for students to meet other students, planning faculty, and attend conference activities such as panels, workshops, business meetings, and receptions. The goal is to make students of color aware of the importance of planning education/research and why more planning faculty of color are needed. The criteria are as follows:

  • A planning Master’s and Ph.D. student (priority will go to students presenting at the conference).
  • Travelling more than 100 miles to attend the conference.
  • A student attending an ACSP member school.


Please submit all documentation by the submission deadline: May 15, 2015.

  • Completed application
  • Current vitae
  • statement of research and/or planning career interests (statements should be no more than 300 words in length). Statements that reflect a particular interest in communities of color will receive priority.
