The College of Architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in partnership with SGH Inc. and Dri-Design, has established a student scholarship competition for the fourth-year, undergraduate, architectural design studios.  The scholarship recognizes student projects exemplifying outstanding design investigation, resolution, and significance. 

This opportunity brings together aspiring architects and industry leaders to advance disciplinary knowledge of design, materiality, and innovation.

Following the end-of-semester review, one project from each studio will be selected to compete for the SGH Inc./Dri-Design Scholarship.  These projects will be presented to judges who are all established practitioners in their fields. A finalist will be chosen for producing and communicating a comprehensive architectural project that is a result of design decisions at different scales. To be successful, students need to demonstrate a high degree of professional dedication, rigor, open-mindedness, and resourcefulness. Projects are expected to be rigorously thorough and to clearly communicate the breadth and depth of investigation.

We thank our sponsors, SGH, Inc., a leading distributor and installer of customized building products and Dri-Design, a producer of advanced and sophisticated metal wall panel systems, for their continued student support.
