NRPA in partnership with The Trust for Public Land and the Urban Land Institute are leading a nationwide movement to ensure there’s a great park within a 10-Minute Walk of every person, in every neighborhood, in every city across America.
The scholarships and fellowships provide an opportunity to attend and explore the operation of the field at the NRPA Annual Conference. Recipients receive complimentary NRPA Annual Conference registration, a travel stipend and hotel expenses reimbursed. Submit your application by March 23, 2018.
We’re collecting photos that tell a great story for a chance to be featured on the July 2018 issue of Parks & Recreation in celebration of Park and Recreation Month. We’ll choose the top photos and put them to a public vote on Facebook. Submit your photo by March 30, 2018.
