2020 Reduced AICP Exam Fee Scholarship Application Closes March 27

The 2020 Reduced AICP Exam Fee Scholarship program is available to current members of APA Florida.  This program was established to assist individuals who may defer taking or are unable to take the AICP exam because of the cost. Four (4) scholarships are available.  The deadline to submit a letter for scholarship consideration is March 27, 2020.

Individuals who are approved to take the exam will pay $75 instead of $425. If an award is given to an AICP Candidate participant, they will pay $75 instead of $100. If a scholarship applicant has already paid the exam fee, the difference will be refunded.  Refunds generally take up to five weeks to process. Please note that the awarding of a scholarship does not guarantee that a recipient will be approved to take the AICP Exam.  The exam application will be evaluated like any other.

To be considered for this scholarship, please email APA Florida Professional Development Officer Allison Megrath, AICP (Allison.Megrath@kimley-horn.com) describing your financial hardship (including financial hardship caused by a budget cutback in a firm or agency), which necessitates the request.

  • Members of minorities should be given preference.
  • The applicant(s) selected will be otherwise unlikely to take the exam without the reduced fee.
  • The applicant’s employer will not subsidize the exam fee.

Final decisions on scholarships shall be at the sole discretion of the APA Florida Professional Development Officer and shall be final.  Recipients will be notified as soon as possible.  All nominations/selection of scholarship recipients shall be strictly confidential.
