Description

Maybe you chose architecture because you want to design a better world. Or you canÔÇÖt imagine doing anything else. One thingÔÇÖs for certain: You love this work. And weÔÇÖd love to help fund your college experience with a multiyear scholarship, up to $20,000. We created the Diversity Advancement Scholarship to help more minority students pursue a successful career in architecture. Multiple scholarships are available. WeÔÇÖre looking for minority students whose imagination and design thinking will influence the future of the built environment and the architecture profession. Eligible students must be a U.S. citizen, have a minimum 3.0 GPA, and be a high school student planning to enroll in a NAAB-accredited architecture degree program; or, a rising second-year college student in a NAAB-accredited architecture degree program; or a technical school or community college student who has completed high school or its equivalent and intends to transfer to a NAAB-accredited architecture program. NAAB-accredited degree programs may be a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree, or a four-year pre-professional bachelor degree followed by a Master of Architecture degree. Scholarships may be renewed for up to 5 years (up to a $20,000 total award&--multiple scholarships are available).
