How do I apply?

The deadline for applications is MARCH 20, 2017, Monday.  You will submit your application to the School of Architecture Scholarship Committee, not to TAF.  Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Download and fill out the 2017-18 TAF scholarship application form.
  2. Fully complete the scholarship application. Texas Architecture Foundation stresses that student answers on the application are very important, as they are presenting themselves to practicing architects. Thoughtful answers, correct spelling and grammar may be the deciding factors when making the final choice.

  3. Create a digital portfolio in pdf format.
  4. Name both files with your last name and submit both files on cd to the School of Architecture office, along with the completed and signed application form. (for example: ralphsullivan-application.pdf and ralphsullivan-portfolio.pdf)
  5. Due Date: Monday, March 20, 2017. Submissions may be turned in to Wendy Ryan, the receptionist in the CAPPA administrative office, Rm 203, no later than 5pm on March 20. Only thumb drives will be accepted.

Then what happens?

The Scholarship Committee will review the applications and decide which ones to nominate for the various awards. We will inform students whether or not their applications were nominated and sent to TAF for consideration of final award.

For students who are awarded scholarships, by TAF, please note that the funds will be disbursed to the School in July, to be distributed to the student for the Academic Year upon confirmation of enrollment.
