AIA Rochester & The Architectural Foundation of Greater Rochester

The Rochester Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in conjunction with the Architectural Foundation of Greater Rochester (AFGR) is proud to announce that we are now accepting applications for the 2019 Architectural Scholarship Program. These scholarships are jointly funded with contributions from AIA National, Bergmann Associates, the family of Myron Starks, AFGR, and are administered by AIA Rochester.

This program is open to area high school students planning to attend and college students currently enrolled in and continuing in an architectural program at the university level.  See documents for further information.

Primary emphasis for consideration is based upon the student’s written response addressing the primary reasons driving the decision to enter the profession, what sparks a sense of passion and dedication to improving the built environment, and succinctly articulating the motivating factors behind pursuing architecture as a career. Additional emphasis will be placed upon the applicant’s contributions to the community via civic, academic, social and leadership activities as well as the strengths contained in the required letters of reference.

Applications shall be postmarked no later than 31 March 2019. Incomplete and/or faxed copies are not eligible for consideration and will not be reviewed. Questions may be submitted via email to Linda B. Hewitt, executive director of the Rochester Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, at: lbhewittt@aiaroc.org.

We look forward to your students’ participation and wish them success!
