DBIA-SW's 2023 Scholarship Applications - Register by June 30!

Updated: Jun 2, 2023





By preparing the next generation of design-builders, we're building not just projects, but futures - designing not just better ways to work, but better networks. That is why the DBIA Southwest Region is thrilled to announce the start of our 2023 scholarship program, which will provide competitive awards to undergraduate students pursuing a program related to architecture, engineering, or construction at an accredited university/college in the Southwest Region; faculty members of an accredited architecture, engineering, or construction program in the Southwest Region; and young professionals in the southwest region seeking design-build certification through DBIA.

These scholarships are awarded by the DBIA Southwest Region's Education Committee and are made possible by the organization's fundraising efforts and the generous support of our Premier Partners. Applications for the 2023 scholarship program will close on June 30, 2023 and winners will be announced in August.
