American Institute of Architects East Tennessee’s Future Faces of Design Scholarship

Dates: July 14th – 20th, 2024
Location: UTK College of Architecture + Design
Description: Come spend a week with UTK this summer in a UT design studio to learn about design and your place in it during our summer design camp for high school students. You’ll learn about architecture, interior architecture, and graphic design and how they impact the world.
This camp is for creative, problem-solving, out-of-the-box thinkers. It’s a July design-immersion experience that offers motivated high school students an introduction to design and how design impacts the human experience. You’ll also learn a lot about yourself and the world, and you’ll probably meet lifelong friends.

No Experience Needed
Previous architecture, interior architecture, or design experience is not necessary.  If you’re a rising freshman, sophomore, junior or senior in high school and have an interest in design and how it impacts the world, this is your place.  Just bring your creativity and curiosity

Future Faces of Design Scholarship Information

The American Institute of Architects East Tennessee Chapter is excited to announce that our Future Faces of Design Scholarship is open and ready to support students from historically underrepresented demographics in architecture. Our Future Faces of Design Scholarship provides students with the opportunity to pursue their interest in the field and shape the future of the profession as well as seek to improve the built environment. The scholarship includes a one-time award for the cost of attending UTK College of Architecture and Design’s Summer Design Camp® 2024 and includes the general tuition, a 6-night room stay, all meals, and university programming. Students will live in a 2-person suite with 1 private bathroom in a university dorm with camp counselors located on the hall.
