Scholarships/Funding Support:
The College Board offers qualifying teachers the opportunity to attend an APSI for free in the form of scholarships and/or fellowships. Applications are available from the College Board website, and the deadline for applications is February 15, 2017. For more information about scholarships, see our scholarship information sheet.

Support may be available for teachers who work in schools that serve minority, low-income or rural students who have been traditionally underrepresented in AP courses.

Please note that requesting a scholarship from the College Board is not the same thing as registering for an APSI workshop. If you have submitted a scholarship request to the College Board, we strongly encourage you to register for your chosen APSI workshop online as soon as possible, as they often fill up fast. To hold a spot in a course after you have submitted a scholarship, click on a “register now” link and follow the directions in the online registration form. We will guide you through the process of indicating your scholarship request when you register, and you will not have to make a payment up front.

School Purchase Orders (POs):
You can register online and request we invoice your school until three weeks before your session begins. After that time, registrations will not be accepted without full payment or an approved Purchase Order from your school or organization. For more information about school purchase orders, see our purchase order information sheet.

Registration Deadlines:
To allow us time to order your College Board materials, please register no less than three weeks before your session begins. After that time, we will accept new participants only if there is space in the class and full payment is received at the time of registration. Participants registering with less than three weeks’ notice should not expect all of their materials to be present upon arrival.

Cancellation and Refund Policies:
1.   You may receive a refund of any monies paid, minus a $100 cancellation fee, if we receive your cancellation notice in writing or by phone before the deadlines listed below.
