      New APA Student Grant Program






      Hello All,

      The American Planning Association, Environment, Natural Resources and
      Energy Division (ENRE) would like to announce a new grant open to all
      planning students.
      In 2009, ENRE will offer the first of its kind ENRE Conference Grant.
      These two $500 grants will be awarded to eligible student groups, to
      encourage student planners to work with their local and/or state chapters
      in making environmentally-themed contributions to their state or regional
      APA conferences. Through the grant, ENRE hopes to introduce student
      creativity and enthusiasm about environmental issues into state and
      regional conferences. In addition this grant will foster cooperation
      between students and their state chapters, and help develop active
      professional participation in chapter activities.
      Both graduate and undergraduate groups from accredited planning schools
      can participate in the grant program. Grant funds may be used to bring a
      speaker, creative project or exhibit to a state or regional APA
      conference.

      Please view the full RFP pasted below
      Please contact Julianne Siegel at julianne.siegel@... with any
      questions about the grant.

      ENRE Conference Grants for Student Groups
      The ENRE Conference Grant is awarded annually to encourage student
      planners to work with their local and/or state chapters in making
      environmentally-themed contributions to their state or regional APA
      conferences. This grant is designed to encourage introduction of student
      creativity and enthusiasm about environmental issues into state and
      regional conferences. In addition it should foster cooperation between
      students and their state chapters, and help develop active professional
      participation in chapter activities.
      ENRE will offer two $500 grants each year to eligible student groups.
      Eligibility
      Both graduate and undergraduate groups from accredited planning schools
      are eligible to submit a proposal for an ENRE grant. Eligible groups
      include:
      APA-recognized Student Planning Organizations
      An accredited planning program class or studio that develops a project
      under the guidance of an instructor
      A group of three or more students from an accredited planning program who
      have organized for the purpose of developing a project and who have a
      faculty advisor
      Uses of Funding
      Grant funds may be used for honoraria (for a speaker), art or exhibit
      supplies, expenses related to editing or production, transport of exhibit
      materials or other expenses necessary to producing the project at the
      conference. A brief budget will be required to demonstrate how funds will
      be used.
      Funding will require a grant award agreement to be signed by the
      organization chair or the group?s faculty advisor. The project description
      and budget will be included in the agreement as the scope of work. Funded
      groups will be required to submit a one-to-two-page report describing the
      completed project which will be published in the ENRE newsletter.
