APIC Professional Development Sponsorship

APIC Scholarships

By sponsoring a scholarship to support an IP student or professional, your organization not only showcases its dedication to the future of IPC but also:

  • Directly supports a student or IPC professional with the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop in the profession.
  • Demonstrates your commitment to empowering students and IPC professionals, who are the future of the profession.
  • Connects your brand to the education and development of passionate students and IPC professionals.

Sponsored scholarships are fully managed by APIC—from promoting your scholarship, collecting applications, judging, and selection, to awarding of scholarship funds.
