Funding / Guidelines

Standing Rules


IPC offers reimbursement of up to $750 annually for students who attend professional development experiences, such as conferences and career fairs, through the Professional Development Fund (PDF).    IPC is pulling from a set fund and the amount IPC is able to reimburse every semester depends on how many students apply each semester. IPC will reimburse each student to the highest percent possible.

Application Materials:

1.            The current cycle application form

2.            The current AP Compliance form

3.            A one page explanation statement

4.            An itemized statement of fees incurred with original receipts. ***However, please do not include gas receipts. Traveling expenses by personal vehicle will be calculated using the state rate per mile. Please include a print out from Google Maps showing the route you drove.

The application process is a competitive one, thus allowing greater allotments of money for more meaningful experiences. Specific application instructions and eligibility criteria may be found on the PDF application. For additional details, please review the PDF Standing Rules before applying to prepare the most competitive application possible. Please put time and effort in your essay, as this part of the application can help differentiate yourself from the rest.
