Daniel J. Curtin Fellowship

Daniel J. Curtin, Jr.

The Planning and Law Division (“PLD”) of the APA serves those who seek to understand the diverse legal issues that affect the planning profession. The purpose of the PLD’s Daniel J. Curtin, Jr. Fellowship Program (“Fellowship Program”) is to foster increased interest in the study of land use planning and its interrelationship with the law at the advanced undergraduate, graduate, and law school levels. San Francisco native Daniel J. Curtin, Jr., a former member of the American Planning Association (“APA”); an expert on the California General Plan, planning law, and land use regulations; and retired partner and of counsel in the Walnut Creek office of Bingham McCutchen LLP, died in 2006. This program will provide increased participation in the planning profession, and ultimately, greater service to communities across the nation.  The Fellowship Program is open to third and fourth year undergraduate students, master’s degree students, and certain law students.  One fellowship with a stipend of $2,500 is awarded per academic year.  The stipend includes a $1,500 award and a $1,000 APA membership and Annual Conference stipend.
