AIA/AAF Minority Disadvantaged Scholarship Program

The AIA/AAF Minority Disadvantaged Scholarship provides assistance to high school graduates, college freshmen, and community college students from a minority and/or financially disadvantaged background who intend to pursue a NAAB-accredited professional degree (5-year BA or BA + MA) in Architecture.

In June 2013, the AIA selected four AIA/ AAF Minority Disadvantaged Scholarship recipients.


Applicants must be legal residents of the United States and either:

  • High school seniors entering a NAAB accredited professional program in architecture
  • College freshmen attending a NAAB accredited professional program in architecture, or
  • Technical school or community college students that have completed high school or its equivalent and intend to transfer to a NAAB accredited professional program


2013 program is closed.


Up to four scholarships between $3,000-$4,000 will be awarded in 2013. Scholarships may be renewed every year until the completion of the degree program.
