Through the Architecture and Design Foundation, AD EX awards a variety of scholarships and travel/research fellowships to support high school and college architecture students, as well as young architects just beginning their careers. The McDermott Traveling Fellowship is awarded for traveling studies in architecture; to research, develop, and disseminate knowledge of the built environment. 4th, 5th, 6th year students, or recent graduates (within 5 years) of an accredited architecture program are eligible. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and should be a resident of Texas.
AD EX awards more than $40,000 annually to make college and careers in architecture accessible and bring diversity and equity to our related professions. Applications for the Architecture and Design Foundation scholarship/ fellowship programs are available beginning in October and running through February. Fellowship awards are traditionally made in two payments: one upon award and one after the project is completed and deliverables are completed.
