2023 AIA College of Fellows Component Grants Call for Proposals

  • 1.  2023 AIA College of Fellows Component Grants Call for Proposals

    Posted 03-14-2023 03:24 PM

    The 2023 AIA College of Fellows Component Grants (formerly known as EP Grants) focus on Mentorship.  Grants will be provided to AIA Components for programs that enhance the development of emerging architects and welcome others into the profession.  Grants of up to $8,000 will be made directly to the proposing AIA component.

    Deadline: January 20, 2023

    We encourage new directions in mentorship, enhancement of existing programs, and outreach to currently underrepresented groups, Proposed programs can be directed to a range of participants, from K-12 students to professionals seeking Fellowship.  We encourage collaborative programs between local AIA components and schools, colleges, community groups, and professional firms. We believe that Fellows are a unique resource and can have an important role in these programs.

    Specific attention will be given by the Members of the Jury to the following considerations:

    Purpose: Does the proposal address the stated goals/objectives of this program?

    Key Participants: What is the experience and capacity of the leadership team?

    Audience/Impact: Who will benefit from this program? How will the program be publicized?

    Budget: Is the proposed budget realistic? Is there local support, e.g., quantifiable in-kind contributions, or direct funding from an AIA Component or other Sponsoring entity?

    Component Relationship and Leadership: Does the proposed activity have the Component support to accomplish the desired outcomes?
