“Early in my career, I heard architect Allen Eskew, FAIA speak about how his practice (Eskew+Dumez+Ripple) viewed licensure as the culmination of one’s education as an architect” said selection committee member Michael Davis, AIA. That stance resonated with him and made him realize that licensure was the next step in his career. “It’s not a checkbox, it’s something that signifies the beginning of the next chapter.”
“It was inspiring and impressive to see this level of engagement in the community among the candidates,” added selection committee member Tiara Hughes, Assoc. AIA. “It takes a lot of champions to galvanize and have a real impact, that’s why we’re excited to give back and support these designers with their path to licensure”.
Complete details on the Jason Pettigrew scholarship program are available on the Architects Foundation website.
