2014 AIA Component Matching Grant Application has been closed

The AIA National desires to support local and state Components or their affiliated foundations in their efforts to provide and develop scholarship programs. Offering matching grants to augment existing Component programs will reinforce the significance of the AIA in the lives of architects, aspiring students, and their communities, and will stimulate interest in the formation of new scholarship programs. To be eligible for the grant, a Component must:

  • have given at least one scholarship of $500 or more in the previous year
  • must submit documentation of scholarships given per reporting requirements
  • scholarships must be awarded in at least $500 increments
  • be expended within the year in which the award is made
  • be used for tuition for a full-time student enrolled in a professional degree program accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB)

The maximum amount a single component may receive for 2014 program is one thousand dollars ($1000).
