AICP Exam Fee Grant Application Window open until June 30!

The NY Metro Chapter is pleased to offer an AICP Exam Fee Grant to assist those with financial hardship who wish to take the AICP exam in November 2016. The grant is intended for registered exam applicants who are unable to take the AICP exam because of the cost.

Grant recipients will be required to pay a total reduced fee of $145, rather than the $495 total regular fee. Grant recipients who have previously paid the application fee ($70) will be required to pay a total reduced fee of $75. Grant recipients who have already paid the AICP exam fee ($425) will be refunded to a total reimbursed fee of $145.

To apply, please submit the following to by close of Thursday June 30th:

  • Full name
  • APA ID
  • Address
  • A description of your financial hardship (maximum 300 words).

Names of recipients will remain confidential and will not be announced.

We will be offering this grant again for those taking the May 2017 AICP exam. Please feel free to reach out to Professional Development Officer Alex Wallach at with any questions. Looking for more AICP or general professional development resources for planners? Check out our Career Resources page.
