For summer 2017, we offer the Robert L.

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.
