Diversity Scholarships

ACLP is pleased to announce additional funding has been secured to continue the diversity scholarship program. Diversity scholarships will be offered for Fall 2017, Winter/Spring 2018, and Summer 2018 internships. The goal of these 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.
