Architecture scholarships are financial rewards offered to students pursuing their education in architecture majors also who exhibit exceptional performance in this field of study. Generally, architecture students tend to be the hardest-working students on campus, pulling countless all-nighters. Students spent these long hours almost exclusively on one class i.e., the design studio. Their rest of the classes shouldn't take any more time than classes in other majors. Generally, students get their classes on practical issues like structures and systems, but their design professors will likely (at most schools) encourage them to explore many theoretical issues they don't often have the opportunity to explore in practice.

While capitalism has given the industry an unseen push, it has also brought awareness to consider building a greener planet. A career in architecture is not only well paying but also gets the creative juices flowing. As an architect, you need to keep the requirements of the client or target audience in mind and in the process mold each idea according to their needs and requirements.

The average tuition fee for getting a degree in the field of architecture costs around $19,500 to $26,500 in a year depending on the various institutions and universities. So, if you are planning to pursue an architecture degree and need funding, you can apply for various college scholarships available for students in the country.

Eligibility Criteria for Architecture Scholarships

In general, the eligibility criteria to get Architecture Scholarships in the USA includes the following points: (However, most schools, trusts, or universities have their own eligibility criteria to grant financial aids).

  • You should be a resident of the United States.

  • You must be in high school or have graduated from a United States high school or obtained a general education development (GED) certificate from the United States Program

  • You must graduate or will graduate with a GPA of 3.0 or better on a scale of 4.0.

How to get Architecture Scholarships?

Getting a scholarship for architecture students is pretty much the same as you get in any other field.

  • To make yourself stand out compared to the other candidates you must get good grades and scores and do extracurricular activities.

  • There are several different scholarships available. Many of these scholarships are specific for a few students so you can pick whatever field of study you want. 

  • To get a scholarship specifically for architecture you should build a good portfolio like you would for an art degree.

  • A good first step is to start investigating what scholarships may be available to you. However, various schools have a guidance counselor or department to help you with this.
