Architecture Grads Need Your Help
The AIA has been actively working to advance policies that help architecture graduates with their student loan debt, and now we need your help.
Although we are pleased that Congress and the White House recently agreed to extending lower student loan interest rates until July 2013, architecture graduates still face huge debts when they graduate. Policymakers need to do more to secure opportunities for millions of architecture graduates to continue pursuing educational opportunities while alleviating a hefty financial burden.
That’s why the AIA and the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) have called on Congress to craft legislation that will afford architecture students the same kind of student loan relief and pro bono assistance that have been offered to students of numerous other professions. This mutually beneficial aid will encourage architecture students to play an important part in community development and will keep recent graduates in the profession.
But in order to get Congress to act, we need you to engage your elected representatives. Please go to our action center by clicking below and send a message to Congress supporting student debt relief for architecture students today:
