APG is a not for profit membership organisation. This means we can make funds available to enhance the overall standing of the planning and strategy community and the skills of individual planners and strategists.
You can make an application for funding of £3,000. You will need to fill in the application form to demonstrate what skills you will learn as a result, and how the training will help you develop as a strategist and hence benefit the community overall.
Applicants should use the bursary initially for specialist planning/strategy training. Please note the possibilities on our site. You may also apply for coaching as part of the APG Bursary Scheme.
APG is piloting a scheme with a group of highly experienced industry mentors. You can put part of your bursary to fund this.
On the form you need to state how you plan to spend the money awarded to you. It does not have to be spent in 2019 and can be carried over to 2020.
Genuine financial hardship/need will be taken into account.
Bursaries will be allocated at the discretion of the APG.
Applications will need to be submitted by 29th November 2019. The APG sub-committee will let you know if your application has been accepted after that date.
