Reduced AICP Exam Fee Scholarships

The AICP Exam Fee Scholarship program was established to offer assistance to individuals who may defer taking or are unable to take the AICP exam because of the cost.

Scholarship recipients pay reduced fees to AICP as follows: First time AICP applicants: $145 (combined $70 application and $75 exam fee) Previously approved AICP applicants: $75 (exam fee only)

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. The NY Upstate Chapter of APA encourages individuals with financial barriers to becoming an AICP member to apply for this scholarship.  If you are interested, please provide your name, APA membership number and a written explanation of financial hardship to Rich Guarino ( by July 1 for the November 2016 exam.

The final scholarship recipient selection rests with the PDO and is final.
