The NEPA Chapter of AIA Scholarship Fund was established and funded by members of the NEPA Chapter of American Institute of Architects (“AIA”) to provide scholarship assistance to qualified applicants serious about their long-term pursuit of architecture as a profession and career. They recognize that architecture is as much an art as a science which requires significant commitment from its students. They, as AIA members, commit themselves to be mentors and to provide internships to regional architectural interns.
Further, the NEPA AIA Chapter hopes and encourages students to live and practice their profession within Northeastern Pennsylvania after graduation.
