“Academia and architecture have always been passions of mine, and I am incredibly grateful for the support of my education from AIA Grand Rapids, KCAD, and Pure Architects. The Grand Rapids community has opened so many doors for me in this early stage of my career, and I’m thankful for the continuous support from the AIA Grand Rapids Chapter in creating further opportunities for me through this scholarship program.”– Hayden Prillwitz
