AIA-NJ has announced the grant winners of its annual Scholarship Foundation. The scholarship winners were announced at the organization’s recent annual awards gala in Point Pleasant Beach, N.J.
Eligibility for the grants was based on scholastic achievement and financial need as well as architectural talent. Every year, the AIA-NJ Scholarship Foundation Board of Trustees decides on the winners.
The scholarship award honorees were:
“Architecture students are the future of the architecture industry,” said Jack Purvis, president of AIA-NJ. “As the statewide organization for New Jersey architects, we recognize the importance of celebrating architectural students’ achievements, as well as helping them to meet their financial obligations. The grants are a testament to their success and thirst to succeed in this vital profession.”
The application process for AIA-NJ’s 2013 annual Scholarship Awards will be announced later this year. For further information, please visit www.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.
