The inaugural year of the AIAS FORUM Travel Scholarship received over sixty applications from members who love the AIAS and want to amplify their Leadership, Design, and Service at our largest conference of the year! The AIAS can’t wait to offer the scholarship again next year, and looks forward to pursuing funds to increase the number of scholarships we can award. 

Applications were juried anonymously by the National Board of Directors and Staff according to a rubric based on the AIAS’ Values and whether or not the chapter was at an underserved school (as outlined in the call for scholarship applications). Our Director of Partnerships & Events, Kimberly Tuttle, will work with the selected students to coordinate up to $500 of travel costs from their homes to Toronto, Ontario. Please join us in congratulating the 2019 AIAS FORUM Travel Scholarship Awardees who are as follows:

Adele Doneen from Washington State University

Alexandra Geisen from Washington State University

Daniel House from Oklahoma State University

Francisco Rueda from Prairie View A&M University

Margaret Lewis from the University of Kansas

Maribel Sarai Villarreal from Prairie View A&M University

Regan Campbell from the University of Idaho

Quinn McFadden from the University of Nebraska Lincoln

The AIAS sincerely thanks all those who applied for the scholarship and encourages everyone to register for FORUM before the Early Bird Pricing Deadline ends on November 1st!! If you were ineligible for the scholarship, or applied and are not selected, or would still like to save money on travel, lodging, or registration for FORUM, talk to your Quad Director about fundraising and budgeting for the conference! Your fellow chapters may also have great strategies for getting funds from your school, college, or a local firm. We look forward to seeing you all in Toronto! aiasforum2019.com
