Competitive Scholarships for Current Students in the Architecture Program

MAPP is pleased to announce the opening of applications for Competitive Scholarships for Continuing Degree-seeking Students in the Architecture Program. This awards program replaces the former Merit Scholarship program, which only considered student GPA.

The architecture program has certain endowed scholarships that recognize extraordinary achievements of students. These scholarship funds are available on a competitive basis. Follow the steps below to apply for this category of scholarship funding.

Scholarships are awarded based upon student performance and student authored personal statements. 

To be eligible for this category of scholarship students must:
