Architects students willing to have an international fellowship experience should not miss this chance! Architects Foundation announces a phenomenal opportunity for the United States citizen Architect students by initiating the wonderful McAslan Fellowship. Undergraduate or graduate students matriculating from a NAAB accredited architecture program are welcome to enjoy this fellowship. This fellowship funds academic travel opportunities for top graduating students and provides mentor relationships with international architects.
The aim of designing this fellowship is to introduce the United States architect students with international architects and learn from them. The fellowship provides funding to make their exposure to global education and learning easy and straightforward. The fellowship will be a traveling and study scholarship funding undergraduate seniors and graduate students for a summer of travel and study. It encourages students to perform extraordinarily in the fields of architecture without the stress of finances.
The Architects Foundation is the philanthropic partner of The American Institute of Architects (AIA). The foundation believes architects use the power of design to solve problems, transform lives, and create a better world. They lead philanthropic efforts to attract, inspire, and invest in the next generation of architects who will create inclusive spaces, communities, and places. The foundation believes that architects are uniquely qualified to influence the social and physical communities they design. The architecture profession needs to respectfully and inclusively reflect the diverse society it serves.
