2010 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 York’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 year’s awards were given out on Saturday, October 16 during the Keynote luncheon at the convention.
The 2010 AIANYS Student Award recipients are:
Irwin Chanin School of Architecture of the Cooper Union
University at Buffalo
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
