AIA Santa Fe Scholarship Program
The Chapter supports two scholarship programs for the University of New Mexico School of Architecture + Planning.
In 2022/2023, both scholarships were funded by direct contributions from the Chapter and matched by the AIA National Component Matching Scholarship Grant program.
UNM architecture students submit an application to the Scholarship Committee of the Architecture Program. Each submission is reviewed and evaluated by the Committee, which makes recommendations for awarding the scholarships.
The decisions of the Commiteee are ratified by the entire Architecture faculty at the final faculty meeting of the school year.
Recipients are recognized at the annual Honors and Awards convocation, held in the fall of each year, and also make a presentation at a regular monthly meeting of AIA Santa Fe.
