Congratulations to our 2020 APA Central Texas Section Student Scholarship Recipient, Shunhua Bai!
The APA Central Texas Section provides one-time scholarship aid to urban planning students enrolled full-time in a graduate or undergraduate planning-related program at Texas A&M University, The University of Texas, and/or Texas State University, all of which lie within the Section’s boundaries. The Section granted three student scholarship awards for $1,000 each this year.
Award announcement by APA Central Texas Section:
"Mr. Bai is working on his doctorate degree and is doing very interesting research on micro-mobility issues in Austin with an emphasis on social justice and equity issues. He has a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Minnesota. He writes, in his scholarship application, about a future when people will be able to meet their travel needs without owning a car. Besides taking courses and completing his research, he has participated in a number of community activities such as GirlsDayUT working with young girls to encourage them to study science. Mr. Bai told the Awards Committee in his application that he was submitting his request with maximum confidence. That confidence paid off!"
