SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

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's why the DBIA's Southwest Region is pleased to introduce our first scholarship program, offering competitive awards to students pursuing a program related to architecture, engineering and construction at an accredited university/college in the Southwest Region; to faculty members of an accredited architecture, engineering, or construction program within the Southwest Region, and to Young Professionals in the Southwest Region in a current position that involves the use of design-build practices. 

These scholarships are awarded by the DBIA Southwest Region's Education Committee and are made possible by the fundraising efforts of the organization and the generous support of our Annual Sponsors.
