Call for Applications: Architects Foundation Now Accepting Submissions for Scholarships

WASHINGTON – Nov. 7, 2018 – The Architects Foundation, the philanthropic partner of The American Institute of Architects (AIA), is now accepting applications for three scholarships that support the next generation of architects.

“The Architects Foundation is thrilled to welcome more scholars into our fold,” said Marci Reed, Executive Director. “In addition to financial support, we aim to empower them to succeed in the profession of architecture and have positive impact in an increasingly diverse world.”

Beginning today, architecture students—that meet the required criteria—can apply for either the Diversity Advancement Scholarship, the Payette Sho-Ping Chin Memorial Academic Scholarship or the Yann Weymouth Graduate Scholarship. Applications must be received by Jan. 16, 2019 for consideration.

Diversity Advancement Scholarship

This multiyear scholarship supports high school and undergraduate minority students who are entering, enrolled in, or transferring into a National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) accredited undergraduate architecture program. Scholarships may be renewed every year until the degree is completed, for up to five years ($20,000 total award).

Payette Sho-Ping Chin Memorial Academic Scholarship

This scholarship is an honor to the legacy of Sho-Ping Chin, FAIA, who helped shape the national discourse on women in architecture and design. The scholarship is open to third and fourth-year women architecture students in a NAAB-accredited undergraduate degree program, as well as women in any level of graduate study in a NAAB-accredited program. In addition to a financial award of $10,000, recipients are also paired with a senior mentor from Payette for their scholarship year.

Yann Weymouth Graduate Scholarship

The Yann Weymouth Graduate Scholarship was established in 2018 in honor of architect Yann Weymouth, AIA. Weymouth served as chief of design for I.M. Pei on the National Gallery of Art East Wing in Washington, DC and the Grand Louvre Project in Paris. He is now working as the Design Director for a science research laboratory at the University of Miami with Harvard Jolly Architecture. This scholarship is awarded each year to an architecture student with a focus on the design intersection of sustainability, resilience, wellness and beauty. The recipient will receive a $5,000 scholarship as well as the opportunity to be mentored by Weymouth.

Complete details on Architects Foundation scholarship programs are available online.
