Congratulations to the 2017-2018 CPF Scholarship Winners!

 

The California Planning Foundation (CPF) is pleased to announce its 2017 scholarship awards program for outstanding planning students in the State of California. A little more than $58,000 has been awarded this year to thirty-one deserving scholarship recipients.

CPF’s major and named scholarships are awarded to students in accredited and non-accredited schools based on an application and selection process by the CPF Board. These scholarships are designed for continuing students entering their final year of an undergraduate or master’s degree program. Criteria for the scholarships include academic performance, financial need, increasing diversity in the profession of planning, and a commitment to serve the planning profession in California. Section-funded scholarships also awarded to students in accredited and non-accredited schools in various amounts with the same selection criteria and process by the CPF Board.

A huge congratulations to every student who received a 2017-2018 CPF Scholarship!  We look forward to celebrating you and your accomplishments at the upcoming APA-CA conference in Sacramento, September 23-26 2017.
