Students who wish to apply for the Jim Boyce Memorial Scholarship must be currently pursuing a degree in architecture, landscape architecture, civil engineering, construction management, interior design or another degree program closely related to accessibility/universal design at an accredited United States institution of higher learning. Students must have a 2.5 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. Applications open in September, and the number of recipients and dollar amounts will vary. This scholarship is in honor of Jim Boyce, and all of our former APA members and supporters, 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.
