SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

 

The future of the architectural profession resides with the next generation of architects. The AIA Silicon Valley Scholarship program has three scholarships available for students whom reside in Santa Clara Valley and are currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program leading to a career in architecture.

 

The scholarship committee, board of directors, and members at large feel a student's decision to study architecture should be determined by talent and perseverance and not limited by financial status.
