Diana Donald Scholarship-Internship Program
Have you been trying to initiate a planning project but could use a couple extra hands to get it off of the ground? Are you working on a project and could use a little help working out the details? Have budget constraints made it challenging to get the staffing you need for those planning initiatives you have been dying to start?
The Connecticut Chapter of the American Planning Association may be able to help you. Birthed out of the tradition of the Diana Donald Scholarship fund, CCAPA is now offering a grant funded internship program to nonprofits and governmental entities.
Diana Donald, who passed away in 1975, was a Connecticut‐based planner who was recognized nationally for her contributions to the profession. At the time of her passing, at age 40, she was the First Vice President of the American Institute of Planners and was in line to become President. Her status in the association set an historical precedent for women in planning.
Internship program guidelines and application are available annually, and will be announced here. Please contact us with any questions.
