NEW Scholarship for architectural or architectural engineering program

The American Institute of Architects, Vermont Chapter (AIAVT) is offering two new scholarships- which are to be given to high school students. These two scholarships will be awarded to students who have demonstrated excellence in areas of design or aesthetics.  To qualify, the applicant must be scheduled to complete their senior year at a Vermont high school and be accepted in an architectural or architectural engineering program anywhere in the United States.

We are calling the new scholarships the AIA Vermont Scholar Promise Awards.  The first two $500 awards will be given out this year. It is our board of directors' intention to continue to offer these awards each spring for the foreseeable future.

Due to our chapter's interest in supporting our state's economy and local design firms, our board will give preference to equally qualified candidates who will attend any of the three Vermont institutions that teach architecture: Norwich University, Vermont Technical College, or Middlebury College. For superior candidates accepted to out-of-state architectural institutions, the in-state preference will be waived.

We will request that applicants submit a 500-word essay on why they are good candidates for the scholarship, as well as a portfolio of architectural and/or artistic work that demonstrates their developing skills as a designer. The scholarship application form will be online at http://www.aiavt.org/resources/. Submissions are to be mailed or emailed to AIA Vermont's executive director, Carol Miklos, by June 1, 2015.  Entrants will be notified by email no later than July 6, 2015.

The scholarship funds will be distributed directly to the institution where the recipients are enrolled for the fall semester of 2015 by the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC).
