APNA is committed to creating a more inclusive and diverse community of household staffing business owners. While our goal has always been, and will continue to be, to support all small business owners within our industry and provide access to the tools required to achieve longevity and profitability, we must acknowledge one important fact: it is historically more difficult for minority owned businesses and entrepreneurs from underserved communities to succeed. APNA is committed to addressing this disparity by improving access to much-needed, industry-specific educational opportunities, such as the APNA Conference and our business building webinars, for this important group of entrepreneurs.
APNA’s DEI Scholarship is awarded to new agency owners who might not otherwise be able to attend the APNA in-person conference. Scholarships will cover the registration and lodging costs to attend conference, as well as include access to APNA’s monthly webinars and Accelerator Program. Scholarships will be awarded based on financial need and to those applicants who have demonstrated a commitment to building their business through ethical practice and participation and support of the larger community.
Applicants shall complete in its entirety the DEI Scholarship Application Form, including the Applicant Statement. The completed form is to be submitted to the APNA Diversity Scholarship Committee no later than 90 days prior to the annual conference. APNA Board of Directors, in its discretion, shall appoint two or more APNA members or sponsors to evaluate the applications and select a recipient. The recipient of the scholarship will be selected and notified no less than 60 days prior to the annual conference.
Deadline to apply: July 22, 2022
The applicant statement should include the following:
1. Description of why a diversity scholarship is relevant to you
