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.
