NCARB Award: Bridging the Gap Between Education and Practice


Since 2001, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has awarded more than $800,000 to schools in support of innovative programming that integrates practice and education and raises awareness of architects’ responsibilities for public health, safety, and welfare.

The NCARB Award supports initiatives that will have a long-term, ongoing impact on architecture students and faculty and the program’s curriculum. In 2012, the Council  received a record-breaking number of submissions for the NCARB Award. A total of $75,000 was awarded to three schools, and three additional schools were recognized with honorable mentions.

Attention Educators: Up to $75,000 will be available for up to three awards. The 2013 submission deadline is Tuesday, 24 September 2013, 5 p.m. EDT
