New Haven, CT – The National Organization of Minority Architects, Connecticut Chapter (NOMAct) has created a scholarship fund to encourage minority K-12 students interested in architecture to learn and explore more about the built environment.
The University of Hartford Architecture Summer Institute Scholarship will be the first program of 2021. The new pre-college program offers a unique three-week experience in architecture and design for rising high school juniors and seniors. NOMAct is providing a full scholarship of $3000 paid directly to the university on the student’s behalf.
The program will immerse students in a range of content focused on the practice of architecture including design, history, theory, structures, construction, and technology, and will be taught in the well-equipped architecture studios at the University of Hartford with additional opportunities outside of the studio including field trips, architecture firm visits, and more.
In addition to being a member of a minority group, the applicant’s financial need; personal, family, and educational background; and personal statement will be considered during the scholarship selection process.
The deadline to apply is May 1, and application materials are available at https://nomact.org/k-12.
