“I am happy West Michigan is where I was given the opportunity to start my career, it’s it is a place with endless growth and opportunity.” - Nicholas Schmitt  

Following graduate school, Schmitt hopes to practice in West Michigan for years to come.  In his free time, Nicholas enjoys hanging out with friends and family, going to sporting events, and working on projects with his brothers.

Since 2006, AIA Grand Rapids has provided Scholarship grants to Architectural Students.  The main fundraising mechanism for these Scholarships is the annual AIAGR Golf Outing, which took place on September 9th at The Golf Club at Thornapple Pointe.  Nicholas has received a $1,000 Scholarship from AIAGR as well as a Scholarship from the AIA National Component Matching Scholarship Grant Program.

On behalf of AIA Grand Rapids, we would like to thank all our Sponsors, Colleagues, and Friends who joined us for our annual AIA Grand Rapids 2020 Golf Outing. We had a great day of golf to raise money for our AIAGR Student Scholarship and Membership Leadership Fund.  Special thanks to our Event Sponsors: ABD Engineering & Design, Belden Brick and Supply, Builders Exchange of Michigan, Clark Construction, and our countless Hole Sponsors.

Nicholas will be honored and recognized at the annual 2020 AIA Grand Rapids Honor Awards Celebration held virtually on October 29, 2020.  Please join us as we celebrate and honor Nicholas!
