AIA Pennsylvania members attend the Women's Leadership Summit 2023.

For a third year running, AIA Pennsylvania is excited to offer scholarships for members to attend the Women’s Leadership Summit 2024 in Chicago from October 8-10, 2024.

The Women’s Leadership Summit (WLS), an annual event founded by AIA, exists to support and empower women on their leadership journeys and break down the barriers that get in their way.

The AIA Pennsylvania Women’s Leadership Summit Scholarship covers a minimum of three members’ total summit registration plus a stipend for airfare and accommodations. There is flexibility to award additional recipients’ registration.

Applications will be accepted through 11:59 pm, June 7, 2024, and reviewed by the AIA Pennsylvania Women in Architecture Scholarship Task Force, charged with setting criteria and reviewing the applications to advocate for recipient funding. Criteria for evaluation include but are not limited to:

  • passion for advancing a career in architecture
  • involvement in AIA
  • advocacy efforts or advancement of the architecture profession and/or greater industry
  • service to a community or the greater public through design

Applicants will be notified of the scholarship award decision by late July.

As individuals and a 2024 class, scholarship recipients will be required to document their WLS experience with written takeaways, highlights, resources, and photos for use in compiling the following:

  • Written synopsis for the membership
  • Presentation to the AIA Pennsylvania Board
  • 1 hour virtual CE presentation to the membership
  • Report to local chapters
