Architecture Scholarship

In case you know any interested Students

Syracuse University has 10 Full Rides for African American Men and Women Interested in Studying Architecture.

Mark Robbins, Dean of Syracuse University’s School of Architecture is desperately seeking young men and women of color interested in pursuing a five year professional degree in Architecture. He says he’s deeply committed to bringing diversity to his field and has scholarship money set aside to fully cover education costs for 10 students. He says that Hispanic enrollment in the school has increased substantially, but it’s been challenging to attract Blacks.

Syracuse University School of Architecture has a great reputation and this could be a terrific opportunity for someone. Please circulate the information to everyone you know.
