The APX Foundation is awarding fellowship grants of up to $500 to emerging professionals taking licensing exams.
This fall, we will award 4 fellowships of up to $500 each.
We seek to encourage our brothers to be leaders within their profession. To do that, they first need to get into the profession. The cost of licensure is an obstacle to staying within architecture and the allied arts, especially for first-generation college graduates.

The Fellowship grants are intended only for members who are not receiving reimbursement for the costs from their employers.
The eligible exams are not limited to architecture and select allied arts. Refer to the list of eligible exams.

Other exams may qualify. If there’s an exam or certification you think we’ve overlooked, please recommend it for consideration by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The APX Foundation will award fellowships at random from among eligible applications, giving preference to applicants who have not previously been awarded fellowships.
Fellowship recipients will be required to submit documentation and/or receipts to the Foundation prior to the grant being issued for reimbursement. If not submitted by the deadline approximately 6 months following the award, the recipient risks forfeiting the fellowship grant.
Fellowship grant checks will be sent after receiving of documentation for reimbursement. The APX Foundation does not advance or load Fellowship grant money ahead of registrations. We can not pay for administrative fees for registrations/certifications or cancellation or rescheduling fees.
The APX Foundation will publish names of selected Emerging Professional Fellows.
