Through the generous support of sponsors and donors, AIA Baltimore and BAF support education, scholarship, and professional development.
FAR Student Design Awards
The Future Architects Resources (FAR) Student Design Awards was created in 2013. This annual scholarship is open to students of architecture in their final year of graduate, undergraduate or community college programs in Maryland, and is awarded at various prize levels. It is funded from special events and fundraisers held by AIA Baltimore and BAF.
AIA Baltimore/Morgan State University Travel/Research Scholarship
This scholarship provides $3,000 annually to a Morgan State University undergraduate for international research travel.
Baltimore Architecture Foundation/AIA Baltimore Fellows Leadership Scholarship
Created in 2014 by the AIA Baltimore Fellows in association with the BAF, this scholarship provides support of $1,500 annually for an undergraduate student emerging leader in Morgan State University’s architecture program.
This award offers support from the sophomore year all the way through the senior year. At any given time, three students are supported by this scholarship which is intended to encourage and assist students to be leaders in their academic program, and foster leadership skills for their future in the architecture profession. Funds are raised each year at an annual Fellows’ Dinner.
