The New Jersey chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-NJ) Scholarship Foundation has announced that it is seeking applicants for its 2012 scholarship grants, which reward the achievements of students at New Jersey architectural schools.
“We are thrilled that AIA will again celebrate achievements of architecture students in New Jersey,” said Laurence E. Parisi, president of AIA-NJ. “These students are the future of architecture, and the grants will aid, and also reward, their talents and passion for the field.”
Eligibility is based on scholastic achievement and financial need as well as architectural talent. Every year, the AIA-NJ Scholarship Foundation Board of Trustees decides how much each recipient receives, with the awards ranging from $2,000 to $5000.
The deadline for submissions, including transcripts and all materials, is Friday, June 16. The downloadable PDF application and further details are available at https://aia-nj.org/about/scholarship.shtml.
Architects are creative professionals, educated, trained, and experienced in the art and science of building design, and licensed to practice architecture. Their designs respond to client needs, wants and vision, protect public safety, provide economic value, are innovative, inspire and contribute positively to the community and the environment.
