The only scholarship money available to a student entering the first year of the Environmental Design undergraduate program is scholarship money available from Financial Aid. To learn more about a specific Financial Aid package please contact the Financial Aid Office.

The School of Architecture has one dedicated scholarship, the Dean Harold C. Rose  scholarship, for first year Environmental Design students who are moving on to the second year of the program. Faculty select the recipient of this scholarship at the end of spring semester in the first year of the undergraduate program. Faculty will base their scholarship selection by conducting a faculty vote on the best ARCH 152 projects. This process determines the winner of the Dean Harold C. Rose Scholarship .

First year Environmental Design students do not need to apply for this scholarship as it is faculty selected.

For students in the second through fourth year of the undergraduate program and for graduate students, there are a number of School of Architecture scholarships available. The School of Architecture awards approximately $65,000 in scholarship money a year to students. Information and application for these scholarships will be made available to students every year on the first class day of each spring semester. Students submit a general scholarship application and the School of Architecture Scholarship Committee works through the data submitted to match students to specific scholarships based upon scholarship criteria. The Scholarship Application submitted in the spring is for money for the next academic year. For example, if a student is in the second year of our program and submits the scholarship application in spring semester 2016, the money is available for use in the 2016-2017 academic year. There are 39 separate scholarships for which a student is eligible.
