EXTENDED: URP 50th Anniversary Endowed Scholarship

Working in partnership with the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, the URP Alumni Chapter is working to help raise more than $50,000 for the URP 50th Anniversary Endowed Scholarship Program. The annual award will grant $2,000 to a high-achieving undergraduate or graduate student enrolled in the program. 

 

As the department hits this auspicious milestone, we celebrate its tradition of excellence and forward-thinking. Its formative years were shaped by the late Margarita McCoy, a pioneer for women in the urban planning field who was the first to hold a tenure-track position in planning and the first female full professor of planning in the United States. Over the next five decades, the program has trained planning professionals who have gone on to serve as leaders in the public, private and nonprofit sectors. Others have shaped urban culture in careers outside the planning profession, as members of the news media and advocates of institutional arts.

 

As society changes more rapidly, our graduates’ skills become more critical. We hope you will join us by investing in the future of program and the profession.
