APA Scholarship Program

Jim Boyce Memorial Scholarship - Deadline for applications is March 31 each year.

This memorial scholarship is in honor of Jim Boyce, and all of
our former APA members, who made a lasting impact in the
field of accessibility compliance. By encouraging students to
make accessibility part of their career development, we hope
to further promote accessibility in the built environment.

Students who wish to apply must be currently pursuing an
accredited degree (i.e., architecture, landscape architecture,
engineering, interior design or construction management) in
a United States institution of higher learning. Students must
have a 2.5 or higher GPA and demonstrate a strong interest in accessibility in both design portfolio and future career interests.

Each year applications are accepted through March and the
scholarship is awarded in May via the attended institution’s
financial aid office.
