The AIA Center for Emerging Professionals has opened the nominations for the 2011 AIA/NAC Jason Pettigrew Memorial ARE Scholarship. The NAC established this scholarship in honor of late friend and colleague Jason Pettigrew, who was committed to professional development and community service. The scholarship recognizes the significant contributions of interns at early stages in their careers and encourages them to complete the licensure process by defraying costs associated with the Architect Registration Examination (ARE).
To be eligible, a nominee must be an Associate AIA member, an NCARB Record holder, or a person who has passed one or more divisions of the ARE but has not passed all divisions.
For full eligibility rules, award criteria, and application procedures, visit the scholarship Web page. A committee of distinguished professionals will select the recipients, who will be honored at the Emerging Professionals Reception at the AIA National Convention in New Orleans.
