LPA is an integrated design firm with six offices across California and Texas, providing sustainable design for educational, corporate, healthcare, recreation and civic facilities. The LPA Interdisciplinary Diversity Scholarship will provide renewable scholarships of $5,000 per year to students in LPA’s home states who are pursuing undergraduate degrees in eligible majors associated with the building and design industry.
Applicants must be high school seniors in California or Texas who have been accepted in a full-time undergraduate study at an accredited NAAB, LAAB, ABET, CIDA or NASAD four or five-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year. Recipients must be pursuing a degree in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Architecture/Design, Architectural Engineering, Structural Engineering, Building Science, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related degree and be legally authorized to work in the United States.
Financial need will be considered, and assuming there are qualified applicants, preference will be given to historically underrepresented students in the eligible fields. Awards are renewable for up to four years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, as long as the recipient meets renewal criteria.
