APA Scholarship Program

Jim Boyce Memorial Scholarship - Deadline for applications is March 31 each year.

This memorial scholarship is in honor of Jim Boyce, and all of our former APA members and supporters, who made a lasting impact in the field of accessibility compliance. By encouraging students to make accessibility part of their career development, we hope to further promote accessibility in the built environment.

Students who wish to apply must be currently pursuing a degree in architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering, construction management, interior design or other degree program closely related to accessibility/universal design at an accredited United States institution of higher learning. Students must have a 2.5 or higher GPA and demonstrate a strong interest in accessibility in both design portfolio and future career interests.

Each year applications are accepted through March and the
scholarship is awarded in May via the attended institution’s
financial aid office.
