APA and AICP allows each state Chapter to designate one person that has a financial hardship to take advantage of the 2016 Reduced Exam Fee Scholarship program for the May 2017 testing window. This is limited to ONE person is Georgia who would otherwise defer taking or are unable to take the AICP exam because of the high cost.
Scholarship recipients pay reduced fees to AICP as follows:

- Previously approved AICP applicants: $75 (exam fee only)
However, you must apply to Gary Cornell, the Professional Development Officer by Friday February 17, 2017 for the May, 2017 testing window.
