October 27 &  28, 2018  ~  Buffalo, NY

More information about 2018 coming soon!

Our world is changing, and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, urban planners work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree in planning can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide.

To introduce planning doctoral study to selected outstanding students, one of our member schools with the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning, will host a bi-annual [in even numbered years] workshop to prepare students to apply to and succeed in doctoral programs. Students from groups that are under-represented on planning faculties are particularly encouraged to apply. Groups that are under-represented on planning faculties include: African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islanders. Registration and instructional materials will be provided at no cost, lodging and meals will also be provided at no cost, and travel stipends are available for some students.

Here's what students who attended in 2013 had to say...
