Summer Scholar Life

Students are chosen through a juried evaluation of their work. Scholars spend ten weeks at the firm during the summer and participate in an energized curriculum of design critiques, research, design trips, lectures and professional mentorship. Working as members of studio teams allows Scholars to gain practical skills related to design, construction documents, construction administration, management and other related topics.
