Architects League of Northern New Jersey 2018 Scholarship Awards Announced

By Joseph E. David, AIA

Since 1955, the Architects League of Northern New Jersey (ALNNJ) has offered a scholarship program, and annual scholarship awards remain one of the cornerstones of our organization. This year the ALNNJ received many strong applications and four were chosen to receive awards of $2,000 each. Recipients were honored at the Architects League Members’ Meeting on June 14th at the Piggyback Bar on the waterfront in Jersey City, New Jersey. The Architects League Scholarship Awards are a joint program with the AIA Component Scholarship Grant and are made possible with assistance from our 2018 Platinum Sponsor Pella Windows & Doors and through proceeds from our annual Golf Outing.

 

The 2018 Architects League Scholarship recipients are:
