Scholarships


AIA West Virginia Scholarships


Since 1986 AIA West Virginia, A Chapter of the American Institute of Architects has awarded $208,500.00 to 96 students pursuing a career in architecture. In 2014 the Chapter received a $1000.00 annual grant from the National Component of AIA in Washington, DC. It is the Chapter’s goal, as the statewide component of the AIA, to promote and encourage students to enter the field of architecture and at the same time recognize those students demonstrating outstanding abilities and potential as future licensed architects. Because there is no in-state accredited school of Architecture, the Chapter has continued to support West Virginia students enrolled in out of state accredited programs leading to a professional degree in Architecture and continues to recognize the importance of the Architectural education to its profession. In 2015 AIA West Virginia will distribute scholarships in of $15,000.00. A single or multiple award(s) is presented to college students who are West Virginia residents and in their third year, or equivalent, of an accredited school of architecture. Graduate students in a Master of Architecture program are also eligible. A specific award is given to an architectural student who demonstrates his/her ability to develop project concepts utilizing sustainable principles, alternative energy systems or new technologies for environment systems in an integrated manor.

In 2007, marking the 150th year of the American Institute of Architects and the 85th anniversary of AIA West Virginia, the Chapter seized the opportunity to create a sustainable future for AIA West Virginia by voting to revise their Bylaws and form the West Virginia Foundation for Architecture. The Foundation will be able to build on the legacy of the Chapter’s scholarship program and have the ability to fund projects to promote architecture and the built environment and will allow solicitation of funds from a more diverse group of contributors; allow for contributions from other foundations; and allow AIAWV to fund projects to promote architecture and not be perceived as a commercial for architects. The Foundation is made up of eight Trustees; five AIA members of the Chapter and three public members who will protect it’s assets. Future activities by the Foundation may include preserving a historic building for use as the AIA West Virginia Chapter office, exhibit space, book store, or educational space. The Foundation will establish awards, prizes, and medals for both architects and the public and will become a great avenue for memorials, endowments for special activities, special named scholarships and donations that will be carefully administered.

Students in accredited programs may request an application after August15. Completed applications are due October 15 each year. Awards are distributed in December.

Included in the total, AIAWV awards a $1500.00 and $1000.00 scholarship annually to students enrolled at Fairmont State University in a 4 year non professional Bachelor of Science of Architecture program.  The school designates a design competition and the entries are judged and displayed at the AIA West Virginia annual meeting in November.  A number of these students complete their architecture education by enrolling in a Masters of Architecture program to receive their first professional degree recognized by NAAB.
