Councilman Bobby Henon has once again announced the sponsorship of a limited number of scholarships to 6th District residents to participate in the Philadelphia City Planning Commission Citizens Planning Institute.
The scholarships, valued at $100 each, will be awarded to 6th District residents after their acceptance into the program and will go towards the program tuition (which is the core plus two electives).
"Participating in CPI is a hands-on educational tool," Councilman Henon said. "Coupled with involvement in your local Civic Association and other community groups, CPI gives citizens practical knowledge to draw on when discussing zoning, development and placemaking."
Applicants wishing to apply for a scholarship can contact Andrew Dick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-686-2078 after submitting their application. Scholarship recipients will be chosen via geographically-based lottery to ensure adequate coverage across the 6th District. Applications are due by September 18th.
