DCFA Scholarships and Fellowships Announced for 2011.

One of our most important programs here at the Dallas Center for Architecture is our scholarships and fellowships program.  Through the generosity of major donors and fundraising events over the years, the DCFA Foundation awards thousands of dollars each year to students for the study and research of architecture and design.  Some are simple scholarships that reduce the tuition load on undergraduate and graduate students alike. Others are targeted to certain constituencies like the Minority Architect Scholarship.  And our travel fellowships give outstanding scholars and architects the chance to travel the world to further their particular research agendas.

The Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation is pleased to announce the 2011 scholarship and fellowship recipients:
