Update: Changes to Scholarship & Grants for 2022

Scholarships: Apra-MN will still be offering Apra International and local conference scholarships to our members. Scholarships to our local conference will be made available in the fall.

For Apra International, we are offering two Virtual Registrations to the Apra PD conference taking place on July 27-29. This year's PD conference includes in-person and virtual content, but Apra-MN is choosing to fund two virtual registrations. You can check out what a virtual registration entails on the Apra website, and if you're interested and are an active Apra-MN member you can apply for a scholarship from Apra-MN! Applications are due May 25!

Grants/Giveways: Apra-MN is moving away from open-ended grants to professional development giveaways for the rest of 2022. Our prior grant process had very few applicants and was not the best use of our professional development funds, reaching only a tiny subset of our members. Going forward, we've decided that each month, we will offer a giveaway - we'll choose an item, a webinar, a training, or any other professional development item and offer it to our members in a giveaway. This should get more items into more hands! Keep an eye on the Networker each month to see what item we're giving away and to get a link to submit your name! We'll start this new process in June. If you have item suggestions for future giveaways, let us know!

Your Feedback is Important!

We would love to get your feedback on what you'd like to see from Apra-MN! Please take a moment to fill out the Apra-MN 2022 Spring Survey so you can have a voice in what social and educational events we can provide to our members later this year.
