Advanced Placement Institutes

IMPORTANT NOTE: Because of COVID-19 and our broader concern for the wellbeing of our campus community, all AP® Summer Institute sessions will be held remotely for Summer 2021. There will be NO face-to-face summer sessions here at Fordham.

The Graduate School of Education at Fordham University offers summer institutes VIRTUALLY for teachers of Advanced Placement® high school courses.

  • All institutes are taught by experienced teachers of AP® and are endorsed by the College Board®.
  • Three graduate credits are available per institute.

The registration links are organized by session dates. Registration can also be completed via College Board's AP® Central Professional Development Event Calendar.

Registration for Scholarship Recipients

All College Board® APSI scholarship recipients must register as scholarship recipients to be eligible to use scholarship funds.This is a payment option when participants register on CVENT.

Paperwork Process

The teacher needs to confirm with the College Board® that they accept the scholarship and submit a completed W-9 form to the College Board® for taxes as they specified. College Board® will then issue a confirmation awardee email to the recipient.  Otherwise, the scholarship is not awarded. Recipients should forward the email confirmation from the College Board® APSI Director Matthew A. Sawh, , or processing within Fordham.
