Nicholas E. Vlattas Summer Scholars

Named in honor of Nick Vlattas, founding member of the firm, former COO, and a member of the firm for 40 years, our Summer Scholar program is inspired by Nick’s passion for growing our profession and attracting the best and brightest young talent to Hanbury. Integral to the firm’s strategic thinking, the program inspires and nurtures new design talent while growing the firm’s global reach. A rich experience, the program provides housing, training, design trips and special project opportunities. This unique learning experience has attracted students nationally and from abroad, with more than 50 Scholars from 23 prestigious schools of architecture throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, India and China. Many Scholars have had such a meaningful experience they returned to Hanbury following their graduation to launch their professional careers. 

The program engages and nurtures our entire firm. Members of our firm team grow professionally as they mentor the Scholars. The Scholar Program realizes our firm vision of practicing as a ‘learning organization’ in which learning occurs at all levels of experience; mentoring up and down to grow the firm and provide opportunities through the attraction of top talent and investment in young minds and the future of our profession.
