This year, the Architects Foundation commemorates the 20th anniversary of the creation of the Jason Pettigrew Memorial ARE Scholarship. To mark this significant milestone, we aim to raise $20,000 in support of the scholarship fund.

Since its inception, the scholarship has empowered talented individuals to continue on the path towards becoming a licensed architect, by covering the full cost of the Architect Registration Exam (ARE) and providing study materials. The more than 110 architects who make up the dedicated, passionate, and talented cohort of recipients have not only enriched the architecture profession but have also honored Jason’s memory in a profound and meaningful way. Learn more about Jason Pettigrew, Assoc. AIA, and his powerful legacy here.

Our ambitious goal symbolizes the 20 years of Jason’s enduring legacy and the countless lives he continues to enrich through this scholarship. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has committed to contribute $10,000 — with your help, we can raise $10,000 from our community of alumni and supporters to meet our target. If we reach our goal, we’ll be able to provide this life-changing support to an even greater number of emerging architects.

Here’s how you can help:

Make a donation: Your contribution, no matter the size, will directly impact the lives of aspiring architects. Every dollar brings us closer to our goal of $20,000.

Spread the word: Share this link with your networks and encourage others to join us in honoring Jason’s memory and supporting future architects through the Jason Pettigrew Memorial ARE Scholarship.

Together, we can ensure that Jason’s legacy continues to shine brightly, lighting the path for the next generation of diverse designers.
