The Architects League Scholastic Achievement Award is given to undergraduate & graduate students for scholastic excellence in architectural design. This year’s recipient is Tony Giard of Sussex, New Jersey. Tony attends the New Jersey Institute of Technology and is expected to graduate in 2016.
The Architects League Scholarships for High School Seniors are awarded to High School Seniors who live or attend high school in our geographic territory (Bergen, Hudson, Passaic & Sussex Counties) and have been accepted to an NAAB Accredited Architecture Program at a college in the United States or U.S. Territory. This year’s recipients are Alexander Mount of Old Tappan, New Jersey, and Jonathan Mazur of Wood-Ridge, NJ. Alexander is a student at Northern Valley Regional High School and will be attending Pratt Institute in the fall. Jonathan is a student at Wood-Ridge High School and will be attending Renssalaer Polytechnic Institute.
A ceremony to honor our Scholarship Award Winners will be held on June 18 at the Zeris Inn, Mountain Lakes, New Jersey. The event will be held as part of the annual Design Awards, a joint event with AIA Newark and Suburban Architects.
The Architects League Scholarships are funded jointly through our annual Golf Outing, to be held on July 13 at Crystal Springs in Hamburg, and the AIA Component Scholarship Grant, which in 2015 provided $1,000 toward these scholarships.

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.
