Some of the scholarships are for under-represented groups in the field. As we know, architecture applies to more than just designing buildings, so those of you who love landscape design are in luck as well!

How to win scholarships for architecture students

If you’re applying for architecture scholarships, you may be required to submit an essay as part of your application. This is your chance to demonstrate who you are and why you want to study architecture. One of the best ways to do this is by telling a story. Construct a narrative arc by writing about how your past helped shape who you are today, and how your current goals connect to the future. Throughout your essay, architecture should be the common thread that links the past, present, and future. 

If you need more specific tips on writing your essay, you’re in luck! We have a multitude of resources aimed at guiding you through the writing process. Check out the following guides to get started:

Financial aid tips for architecture students

Whether you are pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in architecture, you’ll also want to apply for need-based financial aid. This need-based financial aid can include everything from grants (like Pell Grants) to federal student loans and work study. To apply for need-based financial aid, submit the FAFSA and for some schools, the CSS Profile.

Make sure that you apply for financial aid by the appropriate CSS Profile and FAFSA deadlines. If you apply for financial aid and are accepted to the college, you will receive a financial aid award letter which outlines the various types of aid available to you.

College-Specific Scholarships

Your college or university may also have specific scholarships available for students studying in the architecture school. We always remind students to research scholarships at the colleges and universities they plan to apply to. Oftentimes, they offer unique scholarship opportunities just for those planning/enrolling!

Local Scholarships

Your local community is one of the best places to search for scholarships. These scholarships are less competitive than awards offered on a national level, meaning they’re easier to win! Check out our guide on how to win local scholarships to learn more. 

Additional resources for architecture students

Whether you’re considering becoming an architecture major, or have already committed, it’s a good idea to check out some professional organizations in the field. For example, the American Institute of Architects is a renowned resource for architects across the country. Joining an organization like the AIA helps you keep up with the current state of the field, find scholarship opportunities, and connect with other professionals around the country. 

You might find new fields of interest and make connections with architects who specialize in it. This could help shape your studies and land you a job after college. In addition to the more general AIA, there are regional architecture organizations and organizations which specialize in one subfield or cater to certain demographics. Here are a few other architecture-related organizations to consider:

Frequently asked questions 

Is architecture a stable job?

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that architecture jobs are expected to grow by 3 percent between 2020 and 2030. While that is slower than average, the field is still growing! To increase your chances of getting hired after graduation, it’s best to get an internship or two under your belt. Our guide on how to get an internship offers some helpful pointers. As far as salary, you can expect to be well compensated if you choose to pursue a career as an architect. The median pay for professionals in this field is $80,180 per year, which is double the median salary across all occupations!

What college has the best architecture program?

Rice University, Cornell University, Virginia Tech, and the Rhode Island School of Design are ranked among the top architecture schools in the U.S. That said, there are a lot of excellent architecture programs outside of this handful of schools. It’s best to do your own research to determine which school is right for you. Our guide on how to choose a college can help point you in the  right direction. 

Is architecture a hard major?

That depends on what kind of student you are! Students who excel in this field typically have a keen eye for design, strong math and science skills, and an interest in serving the public. You can expect a wide range of coursework including computer science, trigonometry, calculus, geometry, algebra, physics, engineering, and art.
