NCARB will award up to $75,000 through up to three awards that integrate practice and education; raise awareness of the architect’s responsibilities for the public health, safety, and welfare; bring non-faculty practitioners into the academy; and address specific criteria outlined in this section.
The Award supports the efforts of architecture programs to create and implement effective new, for-credit curricular approaches that raise awareness about issues central to practice. Each project should have a long-term, ongoing impact on architecture students and faculty and the program’s curriculum.
