Boston – Bergmeyer is partnering for a second year with The Hip Hop Architecture Camp (The HHAC) for its 2023 Hip Hop Architecture Camp x Bergmeyer Scholarship and Internship Program open to high school juniors and seniors looking to pursue a career in architectural design.
Applications are open through April 28, and the awardee will receive a $1,500 scholarship and a one-week, paid internship at Bergmeyer’s headquarter office located in Boston during the summer of 2023. New this year, students must have successfully participated in a previous Hip Hop Architecture Camp in the 2022-2023 year to be eligible to apply.
“I am extremely honored to partner with Bergmeyer again and build on a long-term relationship with Mike Davis, FAIA, to not only provide a scholarship to a young person looking to study architecture but provide real-world experience and an opportunity to travel to Boston,” said Michael Ford, founder of The Hip Hop Architecture Camp. “This is the second year in what will be a long-term partnership to support industry-wide efforts to empower the diverse professionals we introduce to architecture.”
“Michael Ford is truly a revolutionary,” said Bergmeyer president, Mike Davis, FAIA, LEED AP. “His approach – using hip-hop culture as a critical lens to introduce Black and minority youth to the creative potential of architecture and design – is something that virtually no one else is doing. He is single-handedly changing how an entire generation of expressive young Americans sees and understands design as a profession, creating exactly the change that architecture needs right now. Bergmeyer is proud to be able to sponsor his important work.”
Students interested in applying for the Hip Hop Architecture Camp x Bergmeyer Scholarship and Internship opportunity must be current public-school juniors or seniors who plan to enroll at a college or university to major in architecture or design at a NAAB accredited School of Architecture in the United States.
