About the Scholarship:

The AIA New York State (AIANYS) John A. Notaro Memorial Scholarship was established in 2007 to recognize design excellence in our next generation of architecture practitioners. This annual program serves as a way of engaging and recognizing students who will soon be emerging professionals in design, giving the opportunity to interact, share ideas and concepts with professionals, to advance our every evolving profession.
AIANYS, in partnership with the AIA Component Matching Scholarship Grant Program, is sponsoring the annual award and encourage your school’s participation to recognize our future leaders in architecture.

Two project recipients can earn up to $2,500 to be used towards tuition. If there are collaborative efforts, the award will be divided evenly among team members; collaborations should include the names of all students and specifics of involvement.
