Scholarship Competition in Architecture Now Open

The Arts Club of Washington sponsors an annual scholarship competition to recognize promising students specializing in a specific art form or medium. In partnership with the Washington, D.C., chapter of the  American Institute of Architects, the 2015 scholarship will be awarded to students in architecture. Students are invited to submit work that investigates and  proposes a solution to issues related to our built environment.

Entries may cover projects in any area of architectural design and practice.

Application deadline is March 9, 2015

The awards

Winner: $1,500
First runner-up: $1,000
Second runner-up: $750

Eligibility

The competition is open to college students in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia who are at least 18 years of age, but have not reached their 27th birthday by January 1, 2015.

Entry materials

Students submit a high-resolution (300 dpi) pdf containing up to five 8.5 x 11 pages of narrative, drawings, sketches, and/or photos (including images of models, if available) that fully describe the project.

An additional one-page project statement of up to 250 words should also be included in the pdf.

The project narrative and accompanying statement should address issues such as program and purpose; circulation or path; structural logic; material language; context and spatial enclosure; and sequence.

This material is submitted in triplicate, on three individual CDs or USB flash drives. Each CD or drive should be clearly labeled with the entrant’s name.

In addition, entries must include

  • • an official entry form;
