Chelsea, MA -The Architectural Team (TAT) has announced an endowed scholarship at Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT).
Known as “The Architectural Team Endowed Scholarship,” this need-based scholarship for students pursuing degrees in Wentworth’s School of Architecture & Design intends to build a pipeline into professional practice for underrepresented students, directly addressing critical issues of access that have long challenged the design world.
With applications set to open in early 2022 for the 2022-23 academic year, TAT’s $25,000 contribution will be dollar-matched by funds from the Wentworth endowment as part of the school’s Advancing Student Access and Potential (ASAP) Challenge program, significantly enhancing the scholarship’s impact for up to two students who are studying architecture per scholarship cycle. Additionally, scholarship recipients will have an option to apply for a one-semester co-op opportunity at TAT, helping them build the professional experience and networks that are important for long-term success in the field.
The announcement of this new scholarship stems from the philosophy of TAT’s founder, Robert J. Verrier, FAIA, NCARB, who passed away this year.
