2019-2020 Taylor Marlow Lancaster (Amarillo) Texas Tech

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Recipient. ($2,000)

This year, the $2,000 scholarship was made possible, in part, through a matching grant from the AIA Component Scholarship Program.

Thank you very much for your generous scholarship. It will greatly help me continue in my architectural education here at Texas Tech University. My interest in architecture began as a young girl growing up in Amarillo, Texas. I had always hoped to go to architecture school and I'm so fortunate to be able to follow my dreams. I graduated Cum Laude with my Bachelors in Architecture last August from Texas Tech University and I am currently finishing up my second semester of graduate school while also pursuing a certificate in Digital Design and Fabrication. During my time at Texas Tech I have been an intern for over two years at a local architecture firm. I try to absorb as much knowledge as I can from my mentor who has been one of my biggest inspirations. I am also a member of AIAS and the college's Tau Sigma Delta sorority and fraternity. Upon graduating with my masters I plan on completing my internship and beginning my journey to becoming a licensed architect. I want to focus my designs on sustainable architecture. I think the future of architecture should stray from just function and aesthetic, and add focus to our earth. I would love to see buildings become more climate responsive and more sparing with our energy; I feel that I can have the most impact on our planet's health as an architect.

The scholarship will tremendously help my family as the tuition, books, and numerous art supplies add up fast on a middle-class family budget. My parents do everything they can to ensure I get the degree I have always wanted, along with helping five other siblings financially and this scholarship helps a lot.

I am honored by your confidence in my abilities, and with the support of your scholarship I will be able to develop further toward my goals to serve in the profession. Again, thank you for your generosity.

Sincerely yours,
Taylor Marlow Lancaster
2018-2019 Mitzy Belen Gonzalez (Amarillo) Texas A&M

Congratulations to our 2018-2019 Recipient. ($1,000)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generosity in funding the Amarillo Chapter/AIA Scholarship.  I am very honored to be the recipient of this award.

Born in the U.S. and raised in Mexico, I am a Environmental Design major with a minor in Architectural Fabrication and Product Design, with a GPA of 3.8.  My goal is to complete my degree here at Texas A&M University in 2020 and then continue with my graduate studies in architecture.  I plan to pursue a career in set design.  My interest in this field began from my involvement in dance since I was three-years-old.  Particularly now that I am an architecture student, I would like to merge these two disciplines.

Thanks to you I am a step closer to my goal.  By awarding me the Amarillo Chapter/AIA Scholarship, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to get out of my comfort zone and be able to study abroad this upcoming Fall in Barcelona, Spain.  Your generosity inspire me to hopefully one day I can be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.

Congratulations to our 2012-2013 Recipient.


This year, our $1000 scholarship was made possible, in part, through a matching grant from AIA Scholarships.





As I reflect on what have learned in architecture school, I realize that I have not only gained the opportunity to propose design as a solution to problems, but also an expansive number of ideas on how to think - not what to think.
