Thanks to the generosity of the Anthony family, who made this scholarship possible through the Anthony Family Trust.

The scholarship is intended to award one or two upper division or graduate students from the Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Cal Poly Pomona, for an independent study, University course-credit opportunity to travel outside the state of California to study urban design and planning issues in one or more major U.S. cities, including but not limited to New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and New Orleans.
