Diversity Scholarships

The purpose of ACLP's Diversity Scholarships is to support students from diverse backgrounds or low socioeconomic status who may otherwise be challenged in completing an internship.

Each scholarship will be for $5000 (USD), to be dispersed in increments over the course of the internship contingent on satisfactory progress. In addition, recipients also receive an ACLP Associate Level Membership for one year.*

Recipients are required to send in their mid-term evaluation. Scholarship monies will not be dispersed if at mid-point they are not in good standing with their internship program. Applicants should only apply for the semester in which they have secured an internship.
