- APPA’s Institute for Facilities Management
- Leadership Academy
- Supervisor’s Toolkit
- EFP certification preparatory courses
- Consideration for future APPA or ERAPPA professional development offerings

The applicant’s institution needs to be a current dues paying member of APPA.
The application process for all scholarships and grants shall be made using the SNEAPPA Scholarship Application (see Attachment 1). Interested applicants must complete the form and submit according to the instructions contained on the form.
Forms may be obtained online from the Chapter website or from any Chapter Board member. A properly completed application will include a complete description of the professional program to be attended, complete with course costs, and an endorsement from the applicant’s supervisor.
Upon course completion, all successful scholarship awardees will be required to write either a short synopsis of their experience or comment for a minute or two at a SNEAPPA meeting on how the event went and what was most valuable.
There are several additional scholarship opportunities available through the Eastern Region. These scholarships are designed to help defray the cost(s) of attending various APPA sponsored events.
