Wisconsin Architects Foundation Annual Report 2016-17
The Wisconsin Architects Foundation has been a consistent source of scholarship funds and financial support to architectural education and research.
In 2017, WAF generously provided over $24,300 in scholarships and grants. Information about these contributions can be found in the accompanying Annual Report.
For 2018, the WAF Board approved a budget that increases our level of scholarship support for architecture students studying at the UW-Milwaukee School of Architecture & Urban Planning as well as Wisconsin students pursuing accredited degrees at architecture schools outside the state. WAF grants also are provided for student chapters associated with architectural programs at universities and technical colleges in Wisconsin.
In addition, the WAF remains committed to supporting programs for emerging professionals, continuing education for licensed professionals and efforts to enhance the public’s awareness of architecture. We also are in the planning process to introduce a new research grant for architectural investigation.
All of these programs and initiatives depend on continued financial support. That support is more important than ever before in order to meet the challenges of rising college costs and to encourage our talented young people to pursue careers in architecture.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Architects Foundation, thank you in advance for your generous contribution! The future of the profession is now!
