SCHOLARSHIP FOR GENDER EQUITY IN DESIGN
The Scholarship for Gender Equity in Design is awarded to a student studying architecture, interior design, or graphic design. The scholarship is inspired by Dorothy Brink Ingemann, collaborator and wife of William Ingemann, who was the founder of the architectural office that years later became BWBR. Dorothy was one of the earliest women to graduate with an architecture degree from the University of Minnesota in 1925, and began working with Ingemann in 1927. She is responsible for many of the firm’s early designs and renderings. In honor of the path Dorothy followed into the profession, BWBR offers this scholarship to support women, gender non-conforming, and trans students pursuing a professional design degree.

Kaira Looro Architecture Competition
Kaira Looro Architecture Competition, a non profit contest for students and young architects on humanitarian architectures in developing countries. Here is an opportunity for research and professional growth for students with the current edition of the competition.
The architecture contest theme is the design of a Children's House in Africa (Senegal), to promote health and nutrition. The competition aims to launch the careers of new architectural talent, to raise awareness in the international community on the emergencies issue, and to support humanitarian projects. Indeed, the proceeds of the competition will be entirely devolved to Balouo Salo's charity projects and to the construction of the winning project of the competition.
There will be cash prizes and internships at the architectural firms in the jury.
VELUX Award 2024
Registrations for the International VELUX Award 2024 for Students of Architecture are open!
The VELUX Group invites the students of architecture to participate in the International VELUX Award competition on the theme “Light of Tomorrow”. The 2024 competition is the 11th edition, which so far has received thousands of exciting daylight projects from more than 6000 students of architecture around the world.
Since the International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture was first launched in 2004, it has grown into what is probably the largest competition for students of architecture, the architects who will shape the buildings of our future.
The award invites students to explore the role of daylight in architecture and inspire new thinking. The aim of the award is to encourage and challenge students of architecture, and to create a deeper understanding of this specific and ever-relevant source of energy, light and life.
The student teams will work on their projects in one of the two categories: ‘Daylight in buildings’ or ‘Daylight investigations’.
The registration for the participation in the competition is open from 1 September 2023 and stays open until 01 April 2024.
To participate in the competition, first step for students is registration with an e-mail address and a phone number. The students are then encouraged to gather their team, connect with the teacher and start developing their project already during the registration phase. In this way, students can have several months to develop their ideas into innovative and out-of-the-box daylight projects.
