AIA Georgia Equity in Architecture wants to help women and gender non-binary folks in Georgia become licensed architects as soon as possible.  This allows for increased earning potential early in one's career as well as promoting entrepreneurship and independence. Obstacles to attaining licensure include time, money, and domestic obligations.  While we can't give you more hours in the day, we can provide some financial assistance!  

This year, we’ll be selecting six applicants and awarded each one ARE (Architectural Registration Exam) divison of your choice ($235 value per NCARB 2019). Here are the requirements:

  1. You must be a resident of Georgia.

  2. You must have an active NCARB Record and be eligible for testing in the state of Georgia. (Each jurisdiction sets its own rules regarding when you are eligible to take the ARE, so be sure you meet Georgia’s jurisdiction’s requirements.)

  3. Should you win a scholarship, you must redeem the scholarship before December 2019 or it becomes invalid.

  4. The scholarship pays for one division of the ARE of your choice required to meet Georgia’s licensure requirements. This scholarship does not include any rescheduling fees or retake fees. This scholarship does not include the cost of setting up, maintaining, or reactivating an NCARB Record. This scholarship does not include the cost to take an exam in another jurisdiction outside of Georgia.

  5. Upon selecting the scholarship recipients, you must be able to provide proof of your active NCARB record within 7 days. Scholarship winners who cannot provide proof will not be awarded the scholarship and another candidate will be chosen.

  6. Your name and email entered on the application below must match your NCARB Record. (Applying twice with a different email address will not help you).

Below you'll find the information to apply to win one of six scholarships.  We encourage all on the path to licensure to apply - men, women, students, recent graduates, seasoned professionals, and everyone in between.

This year, all scholarship winners and scholarship honorees will selected at random and will be announced via email. The above information is subject to change per NCARB Guidelines.

Winners will be selected at random and notified via email by June 31, 2019.  You may enter once, one scholarship will be awarded per person.
