The GPC Exam is available through electronic testing at nearly 852 testing centers in over 80 countries. Individuals interested in taking the GPC have the opportunity to sit for the exam at a date and location of their choosing. Current scholarship recipients have until September 30, 2020, to take the exam.

The GPC scholarships application window typically opens in May each year and the deadline is usually mid-June. Check back to see the deadline for 2020! We offer the scholarships once a year and if awarded, you would be notified of the decision in August. We publicly announce the winners at the GPA Annual Conference (which is being held in Washington DC in November this year). Scholarship recipients have until March 1 of the following year to submit their eligibility packets and they must schedule and complete both sections of the exam no later than September of that year.

There will be national scholarships available to anyone across the nation whether or not they have a local chapter. There are also some GPA chapters that will sponsor a GPC scholarship for their members, so check with you local chapter if you are involved to see if anything is available for 2020.

The Board of Directors would like to thank all the applicants who took the initiative to apply for scholarship funding. The 2019 recipients were selected based on their application responses using the published scoring criteria. We encourage anyone interested in the GPC exam to apply during the next scholarship round.
