Check out the new information regarding all scholarships. The 2020-2021 Scholarship Application will be available January 1 — February 15, 2020.
Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design
has the opportunity to award numerous scholarships on an annual basis. These gifts
allow us to support the university's mission of recruiting and retaining high-achieving
students who enrich and diversify the academic/design environment. Scholarships are
available for both current and prospective students.
Each scholarship has specific criteria based on the donor’s wishes, however, the selection
process is coordinated by the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design Scholarship
Review and Selection Committee. Examples of criteria include academic merit, financial
need, department or major, interests, organizational involvement, and portfolio submission.
Because most Fay Jones School scholarships (including renewable scholarships) are
one-year awards, all current and prospective students are encouraged to apply each year.
