Deadline: June 1
The Planners of Color Interest Group provides travel scholarships for underrepresented minority doctoral students to attend the annual ASCP conference. The conference is an important venue for students to meet other students, planning faculty, and attend conference activities such as panels, workshops, business meetings, and receptions. The scholarship’s purpose fits with the larger POCIG goal to support and mentor minority doctoral students as they can complete their degrees and increase the number of planning faculty of color.
There will be three awards of $500 each. Each award also includes student registration for the conference.
Applicants must be involved in research that focuses on planning issues of pressing importance to communities of color. Please keep the following in mind as you prepare to submit your application using the submission form below:
Eligible applicants are those who:
- have submitted an abstract and subsequently have an accepted paper to present at the ACSP Conference (ACSP staff will verify the abstract acceptance, and these students will be given priority in the application review process);

- are involved in research about planning issues of pressing concern to communities of color, and
- are currently attending an ACSP member school.
