The API Student Travel Bursary provides financial support or subsidies to support Student members’ attendance at the API Annual Regional Conference each year.
This year’s conference is being held in St. John’s, NL from October 2-4, 2019.
This funding shall be available to any API Student member in good standing who is currently enrolled in one of the Professional Standards Board accredited planning programs at Dalhousie University (undergraduate or graduate). Any Student member who is already a recipient of another Student Award shall not be eligible for this funding during the same fiscal (calendar) year. Recipients of this funding may only receive this funding once during their tenure as a Student member of API. Preference will be given to students who are presenting at the conference.
This funding shall be issued annually by the API Board. For 2019, API will be offering up to five (5) bursaries in the amount of $250 each.
This award shall be applied towards reimbursement of recipients’ travel, accommodation and conference registration expenses incurred in attending, participating in the API Annual Regional Conference (up to the amount prescribed) and shall be disbursed by API following appropriately documented claim by the recipient. Successful funding recipients should be sure to keep all receipts and documentation from their travel, registration and accommodation expenses when attending the conference to ensure the claim can be made upon their return.
In order to be considered for this funding, interested eligible Student members must apply in writing to the Institute in full accordance with the application process and deadlines prescribed by the Institute. The online application process is expected to open in June 2019.
