The $1,000 scholarships cover the cost of APSI tuition; any remaining funds may be applied to travel and expenses. Applicants must teach in schools at which at least 50 percent of the student population consists of underrepresented minorities and/or at least 50 percent of the student population qualifies for free or reduced-price lunch.Apply now.

The AP Rural Fellows Program offers scholarships to teachers serving in rural areas of the country. The $1,500 scholarships cover APSI tuition as well as travel and expenses. Applicants must teach in schools that are classified as “rural” by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and at which at least 50 percent of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Apply now.

The College Board will pay the full tuition directly to the AP Summer Institute you attend. You or your district or school will be responsible for any additional travel, lodging, graduate credit, or other expenses beyond the scholarship amount. You may wish to consult your institution’s policies regarding your participation.
