Consider: “Education… plays an out-sized role in people’s lives. It can vastly outweigh the effects of family and local community on people’s beliefs, values, tastes, and life paths. For the individual student, the investment in time and money, not to mention stress, can be enormous.” The New Yorker, September 30, 2019
The Jean Roth Driskel Scholarship
Established in 1971 to honor Jean Roth Driskel, our first woman AIA Pasadena-Foothill Chapter President and the third woman to be elected to the College of Fellows. The scholarships are awarded annually to four architectural students: two Community College students and two University students, in recognition of their dedication, enthusiasm, and ability in the field of architecture. In recent years, National AIA has contributed an additional grant to each of the recipients. Since 1990 the fund has been a component fund of the California Community Foundation (CCF), an established 501(c)(3) organization. Our program is ably administered by the Chapter Scholarship Committee. Since 2001, they have interviewed over 300 students and awarded over 40 scholarships. This program has contributed to AIA Pasadena-Foothill’s exceptional reputation for supporting emerging professionals, honored by AIA California.
Students can learn more about this scholarship and other opportunities by visiting the Student Resources page.
