APA Scholarship Program

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

The Jim Boyce Memorial Scholarship was established by the Texas Registered Accessibility Specialist Association (TRASA), now the Accessibility Professionals Association (APA), to honor and recognize our friend and colleague Jim Boyce. Jim was formerly a Plan Review Manager with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) and was one of the drafters of the Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS), in 1994. When Jim retired from TDLR, he became a Registered Accessibility Specialist (RAS) and was among the Charter Members of APA. The success of APA is in large part due to Jim’s leadership in its earlier years. Due to the nature of this memorial, the scholarship is only available to college students in Texas.

This year's JBMS recipients are:

Sara Joyce Williams from the University of Texas at Arlington: CAPPA- School of Architecture
Olivia S. Ross from the Texas Tech University: Major - Landscape Architecture

Applications for next year are made available in October
