Scholarship Grants are given annually in the estimated range from $2,000 to $5,000 per selected students. The award selection is based upon an applicants’ demonstration of a NJ connection, scholastic achievement, financial need, and architectural talent.

There is no limitation, save that of the total amount of funds available per year, to be awarded to students. There is no limit to the number of the recipients attending any single school who may apply, if they meet the eligibility requirements.

There are multiple scholarship students selected year. The actual amount of money available to any one recipient is determined by the Board of Trustees. Scholarships are not intended to cover a student’s total cost for any one semester or year, except in unusual situations. All information received is maintained in complete confidence. The names of scholarship recipients will be published in the AIA NJ Newsletter upon distribution of the awards.
