The Niagara Society of Architects offers one or more scholarships annually to encourage studies in architecture by people from the Niagara Region of Canada. The amount of the scholarship is $1,200 CAD. The scholarship is named in memory of Michael Zuberec (1930-2022), who had a long-term interest in people entering the field of architecture, and promoted the scholarship program.
The scholarship is open to individuals who are studying architecture in a program leading to registration as an architect, or are undertaking post-graduate (post professional) studies in architecture, and who have completed high school at a school located in the Regional Municipality of Niagara. Other significant connections with Niagara may be considered - such as employment with a Niagara-area architect while following the RAIC Syllabus program.
The award is open to any level of student (including PhD), however is not available to any student who expects to graduate within one year of the deadline for applications.
The winner will receive the award in Niagara at a mutually convenient date, and, at a later date, to be arranged, will give a presentation of their student work and/or their educational experiences to a meeting of the Niagara Society of Architects.
The decision will be made by a committee of the Niagara Society of Architects. It is not given only on the basis of high marks: consideration will be given to such factors as creativity, dedication and potential. The selected individual will produce evidence that he/she has been successful in the current year, and intends to continue with architectural studies in the next year. If there are no suitable applicants, the Niagara Society of Architects may decide not to make the award.
Deadline for Applications: March 30, 2023. It is planned that the award will be made in late May 2023.
