The AIA Northern Virginia Schools Connections Committee is pleased to announce they are accepting entries for the 2019 AIA NOVA Scholarship Program.

Student Scholarship entries shall consist of a single design for a graphic to be placed on a standard ceramic coffee mug. The design shall be submitted as a 6” wide x 3” high graphic that promotes and conveys interest in architecture, architectural design and architectural education. The design should depict one's architectural design ability and best demonstrate why you are deserving of the scholarship. Entries may also include a brief description of the design intent of the mug with a maximum of 3 sentences.

Entries are to be a single 8 1/2”x11” PDF showcasing the 6”x3” design field as a 2-D representation. Students may add 3-D representations of the mug design, but are not required. The Call for Entries is available for download here.

Recipients will receive a monetary award to be used for tuition and supplies. Send entries to by October 13, 2019.

Eligible students must be rising fourth year students or higher and must be enrolled in an accredited architectural program in Virginia or must live within the Northern Virginia boundaries and attend an accredited architectural program elsewhere in the country. Entries are to be judged anonymously; but include your name, year/degree program, address, email, and phone number on the PDF in some manner. Entries will be retained by AIA NOVA for future publications and potentially used for production.

This Scholarship Program is supported through funding from AIA Northern Virginia and a grant from The American Institute of Architects.
