Scholarship Award + Internship | Women and Minorities | Summer 2017

MOA ARCHITECTURE (MOA) offers an annual merit based private scholarship award + paid summer internship (plus paid travel and living expense reimbursement) to students in accredited architectural programs. Total value to the students is typically in excess of $12,000.

It is our intent that this Scholarship Award + Internship opportunity rewards and challenges students with practical experience in concert with the individual’s educational experience, and further stimulates their passion and interest in a career in architecture. The summer of 2017 will be the 10th year of our program, and it has proven to be a rewarding experience for the students and MOA.

For summer 2017, we offer the Robert L. Outland Women and Minority Scholarship + Internship. Named in honor of our founding principal and an Oklahoma Choctaw Native American, this award was established to recognize and reward entering fifth year, or graduate level women and minority students in an accredited architectural program (who will be returning to school in Fall 2017 following the internship). This Scholarship + Internship is specifically intended for students who demonstrate their passion for architecture, high academic achievement and design ability.

We have chosen to limit opportunity on an every-other year basis (odd numbered years) specifically for those under-represented in the profession - women and minority students through the Robert L. Outland Scholarship. In alternating even numbered years (next opportunity summer 2018) we offer the Kiyoshi Murata Scholarship + Internshipwhich is open to all students.

Submittals are due in January 2017, so we ask that you share this opportunity for the summer of 2017 with your students during this fall term and invite them to visit our Scholarship + Internship page http://moaarch.com/scholarship/ where they can learn more about MOA ARCHITECTURE, this opportunity and the application/submission requirements.
