The Young Architects Forum (YAF), a program of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the College of Fellows (COF), is organized to address issues of particular importance to recently licensed architects.
A scholarship to attend this conference is being offered to an architect who has been licensed for less than 10 years. The goal of this scholarship is to introduce an architect to the Committee on Design (COD) and ask them to communicate the value of COD to other architects. We are seeking an individual who is passionate about practicing architecture and who will have an ability to communicate what they learn at the conference to a wider audience. To that end, applicants should have experience in practicing architecture as well communication skills with social media and blogging about architecture.
► Applications are due by 5:00 PM EST on April 4, 2013
The Conference opens with a reception at 5:30 pm at the Ace Hotel on Thursday, May 9 and will end at 10:00 am on Sunday, May 12. The Conference hotel is the Riviera Palm Springs Resort & Spa.
The tours will give us the opportunity to explore the distinct modern architecture that developed in this desert setting in the middle 20th century. The tours are in the planning stages and are subject to change.
