The Architectural Foundation of Greater Rochester and AIA Rochester, in conjunction with AIA National, Bergmann Associates, Women in Architecture, the Family of Myron Starks, and the Legacy Fund, annually award merit-based scholarships to high school seniors and college students pursuing architecture at the university level.

Applications are made available on our website in late winter for the following academic year. Follow AIA Rochester on social media for announcements. In 2020, $15,000 was awarded to eight students.

"SWBR supports the AIA Foundation's scholarship program.  With the various architectural programs available in our Western region of New York State, we have made a financial commitment in the name of one of our founders, Myron Starks, to help an endowed fund to assist qualified architectural students in their education."
