AIANYS Student Awards
The AIANYS Student Awards were established in 2007 in order to enrich and reinforce design exploration among students; to establish a stronger relationship between the profession and the academy; and to celebrate, nurture, and recognize the future leadership of our profession and society.
The student must currently be attending one of New Yorkâ€™s Ten Schools of Architecture (NAAB Accredited Degree Programs). Awards are intended for students returning the following year, and may be for either graduate or undergraduate study, and enrolled in a professional (or pre-professional) degree program or track. Students are nominated for the award by their dean or faculty. The schools are sent Student Award Applications in February.
Every year a theme is chosen which the students must use to submit a 1,000 word maximum paper on their project. All recipients must submit a design board which is displayed at the annual AIANYS convention. The students receive a scholarship check to be used to continue their studies after convention. This yearâ€™s awards were given out on Saturday, October 16 during the Keynote luncheon at the convention.
The 2013 AIANYS Student Award recipients are:
