Architects Foundation Diversity Advancement Scholarship

Diversity creates innovation, and different perspectives make for a stronger profession and a better world. Yet, industry data show that minorities are still underrepresented in the architecture profession. The Architects Foundation created the Diversity Advancement Scholarship to help address this gap and give more students the chance to pursue a successful architecture career.

Additional scholarships available through the Architects Foundation can be found at this link https://architectsfoundation.org/what-we-do/architecture-scholarships/

AIA Diversity Statement: The American Institute of Architects, as part of the global community, champions a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion within the profession of architecture to create a better environment for all. Achieving this vision has a direct impact on the relevance of our profession and the world’s prosperity, health, and future.”
