Memorial Student Scholarship Program
MAP’s Memorial Scholarship Program was created by Larry Bauman and Mike Banas in 1993 to honor their dear friend Mike Manore, a long time planning leader who had passed away. The Memorial Scholarship Program is funded by proceeds generated at MAP's annual Golf Outing to perpetually fund scholarships for graduate and undergraduate urban and regional planning students in Michigan.
Applications for student scholarships are accepted once a year. The 2023 application is due May 19, 2023.
Scholarships are selected through a competitive process. The MAP Scholarship Committee reviews all applications received and awards student scholarships in the summer.
To apply, you must be a member of Michigan Association of Planning and enrolled at a Michigan college or university for academic year 2023-2024 in an urban or regional planning program or related curriculum with an emphasis on land use planning.
Recent scholarships have ranged from $800 to $1500 per student, in addition to complimentary registration for the annual Planning Michigan conference, held in the Fall.
