Architecture Scholarships

The AIA Northwest Washington Section Scholarship Fund

The goal of the AIA Northwest Washington Section Scholarship is to encourage and assist local residents who are pursuing a degree in architecture. The scholarship application process is open to all residents of Whatcom, Skagit, Island and San Juan Counties who are enrolled in an accredited School of Architecture, regardless of location, and entering their Junior year or above. Schools of Architecture must be accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). Scholarships are awarded once per year, prior to the start of the fall term. Scholarship amounts available are variable, depending on the interest earned from the Fund’s endowment. It is the Section’s goal to award a minimum of one $1,000 scholarship per year.

The AIA Northwest Washington Section Committee will review applications and interview applicants. Awards will be made at the Committee’s discretion. Awards will be paid to the applicant, and can be used at the applicant’s discretion. Should a successful candidate not complete the ensuing academic year for any reason, funds are to be repaid to the AIA Northwest Washington Section.
