Applications for 2021 scholarships are now closed. Information regarding AP 2022 APSI scholarships will be posted to this page in December 2021.

The AP Rural Fellows scholarship provides AP Summer Institute tuition funding for teachers serving in rural areas of the country. The $1,500 scholarship covers APSI tuition. Remaining funds, if the APSI was in-person/on-site and after the APSI has been paid, will be sent to the teacher to be applied toward travel expenses.

Scholarship criteria

Teachers must:

  • Plan to teach an AP course in the 2021-22 academic year
  • Teach in a high school that is classified as "rural" by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and at which at least 50% of the students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch (all islands of Hawaii, except Oahu, will be considered “rural” regardless of the NCES data)
  • Not have received a College Board APSI scholarship for the same subject within the last 3 years
