SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE (Note: This is a revised announcement – please note that the scholarship is now open to planners with up to 6 years of experience and we have extended the deadline).
The Long Island Section is pleased to announce that we will be awarding the Arthur Kunz Memorial Scholarships to two entry-level planners (less than six years out of college or up to six years in a professional planning position) or college students in a planning-related major, to attend the APA National Planning Conference April 9-12, 2011 in Boston.
The Scholarship will pay for conference registration, APA membership for one year, and some additional expenses. In the spirit of Mr. Kunz, a Long Island planner and mobile workshop enthusiast, the scholarship will also fund attendance at one mobile workshop.
If you are an entry level planner working on Long Island, or planning graduate student from Long Island and wish to apply for a scholarship to attend the 2011 APA Boston conference, email your resume and a statement explaining why you are interested to APALongIsland@gmail.com. The new deadline for submissions is Monday, March 7, 2011.
