Diane Flores Korwin Scholarship
One of most enjoyable programs we offer is the scholarship program. ASAP members may sponsor a student to write a 500 word essay on "Why the FOIA, Information Access, or Privacy Matters to Them.” The American Society of Access Professionals’ Diane Flores Korwin Scholarship is intended to provide financial assistance for undergraduate and graduate level students. It is an ASAP member benefit. All candidates must be sponsored by an ASAP member in good standing. Complete details and the application are available here.
