Up to $10,000 in Seed Money Available from NCARB

Washington, DC—The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) annually awards up to a total of $10,000 through the NCARB Grant Program for the Integration of Practice and Education in the Academy. One, two, or three grants are awarded to NAAB-accredited programs to increase and support the development of new curricular initiatives that integrate practice and education.

The NCARB Grant Program was created in 2006 to support the creation and implementation of new ideas and methods to integrate practice and education for a long-term, ongoing impact. The Grant Program is separate from the NCARB Prize Program and provides seed funding for development of efforts that may not have developed into for-credit curricular activities and are therefore not eligible for the NCARB Prize Program.

Architecture programs applying for NCARB Grants are encouraged to:

  • explore different venues or innovative curricular methods that will increase the practice/education link; and
  • present concepts that may be more risk-taking than an architecture program can initially afford.

Submissions for the 2007 NCARB Prize Grant are due on or before 5:00 p.m. EST, on Tuesday, October 16, 2007.
