The California Planning Foundation offers scholarships to planning students in the state each year. And this year it is doing so again and is offering several $1000 scholarships. The Foundation asks that each department nominate one of its students as a candidate for the receipt  of a scholarship. Often our department’s nominees have received scholarships from the  Foundation.
