AICP has provided the Washington APA Chapter with three scholarships for taking the AICP exam at a reduced cost. This program was instituted to offer assistance to individuals who must bear financial hardship as a result of signing up to take the exam or who defer taking the exam because of the high cost.

The AICP exam fee is normally $495 for new applicants ($70 application fee plus a $425 exam fee). Previously approved applicants can take the exam for $425 (Exam fee only). Scholarship winners are eligible to take the exam for $145 (combined $70 application and $75 exam testing fee); previously approved applicants awarded the scholarship would be able to take the exam for $75 (exam testing fee only).

Scholarship applications will be reviewed by a committee of APA-WA Chapter officials. Depending on applications received, up to three winners will be designated, along with an alternate/s (in the event a recipient decides to not sit for the May exam). Scholarship winners and alternates will be notified shortly after selection, and their names forwarded to the national AICP office.
