2014 Submission Deadline: Tuesday, 30 September 2014, 5 p.m. EDT
The NCARB Award supports the efforts of architecture programs to create and implement new, innovative, for-credit curricular approaches that raise awareness about issues central to practice, such as the architect's responsibility for public health, safety, and welfare. The Awards are intended to address specific areas in which the academy can bridge the gap between education and practice and better prepare students for internships and future careers as architects.
