Diversity Scholarships

The purpose of ACLP's Diversity Scholarships is to support students from diverse backgrounds who may otherwise struggle to complete an internship as well as students who are uniquely qualified to work with diverse populations. 

Each scholarship will be for $5000 (USD), to be dispersed in increments over the course of the internship contingent on satisfactory progress. Scholarship monies will not be dispersed should the applicant leave or otherwise not remain active in the internship program.

All applicants will be notified of their status after the initial screening within one month of application submission.
