Fun, cool, helpful stuff for Architects & Engineers

Our Scholarship for Architecture Students — Application Deadline: November 19

Attention, Architecture students! We know how hard you’re working toward your dream career, and we also know the cost of your education is high. Have you applied for the David W. Lakamp AIA Scholarship?

The David W. Lakamp AIA Scholarship was established in 1990 by a/e ProNet, a group of insurance professionals providing risk management services to architects and engineers. It was renamed in 1999 for David W. Lakamp, one of our founding members, and a widely-trusted advisor to the design industry. Mr. Lakamp left behind a legacy of professionalism and integrity that set new standards in the field of insurance services.

Today, the scholarship provides two $2,500 awards each year, and these are bestowed upon the two students who best demonstrate strong interest in practice management.

The scholarship is open to fourth-year undergraduates and graduate students of architecture enrolled in an NAAB-accredited professional degree program. Submissions are reviewed by a jury panel consisting of members of the AIA Practice Management Knowledge Community (PMKC) and the a/e ProNet organization. Candidates must submit a copy of their transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and an essay on how they would resolve a project management dilemma.

The current application deadline is November 19, 2012.

Visit the education section of the AIA website for more information, as well as to download a PDF of the 2012 a/e ProNet David W. Lakamp AIA Scholarship application.

In 2011, two recipients were awarded the a/e ProNet David W. Lakamp Scholarship. To read their case study topic responses, please click here.
