Women of Color Licensure Program:

The ASLA Fund is pleased to announce a new program to provide financial assistance to women of color on their journey to become licensed.  Three generous sponsors have committed to donate a total of $100,000 in funding - Wendy Miller, FASLA and James Barefoot; Marq Truscott, FASLA and Rachel Ragatz Truscott; ASLA, and CLARB. These generous donations will allow us to support ten women of color each year for three years on their journey to become licensed by providing funds to cover the full cost of CLARB registration and each section of the LARE, as well as exam preparation assistance, study resources, and a mentor to assist them on their journey. 

Donate today to help match our current donors and support an additional ten women in the current program or extend the program for another three years! That is 54 newly licensed women of color!
