Diana Donald Scholarship-Internship Program

The Connecticut Chapter of the American Planning Association is pleased to announce its second round of the Diana Donald Scholarship-Internship program.  In honor of the legacy of Diana Donald, this scholarship-internship program offers the opportunity for organizations and agencies to hire an intern in a planning or planning-related field to work on an identifiable planning initiative within the organization.  Grant funds, in the amount of $3,500, will be provided to one agency or organization on a competitive basis.

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.

2017 program guidelines and applications are now available.  Application deadline is May 5, 2017.

Dar Williams Reading, Singing, and Signing

October 10, 2017, 7:00pm - October 10, 2017, 8:00pm

Dar, a Wesleyan University alumni and renowned folk musician, and composer based in the Hudson Valley, presents an impassioned account of the fall and rise of the small American towns she cherishes. Dubbed by the New Yorker as "one of America's very best singer-songwriters," Dar Williams has made her career, not in stadiums, but touring America's small towns. She has played their venues, composed in their coffee shops, and drunk in their bars. She has seen these communities struggle but also seen them thrive in the face of postindustrial identity crises. Here, Williams muses on why some towns flourish while others fail, examining elements of the significance of history and nature to the uniting power of public spaces and food. Drawing on her own travels and the work of urban theorists, Williams offers real solutions to rebuild declining communities. What I Found in a Thousand Towns is more than a love letter to America's small towns, it's a deeply personal and hopeful message about the potential of America's lively and resilient communities. Come and meet Dar and listen to her speak about her adventures and observations on life in small-town America.
