To assist artistically-talented individuals with their formal education, the Alabama Architectural Foundation's scholarship program provides much needed financial assistance to worthy candidates. The foundation awards scholarships to students in architecture or related design disciplines or in any fields of the visual or performing arts, and who are enrolled in any institution of higher learning in Alabama in the completion stages of a bachelor's degree or in postgraduate work.
A committee consisting of three members of the Board of Directors who are appointed annually by the foundation president select the recipients.
Since 1989, several $1,000 scholarships have been awarded to deserving students at three different institutions in Alabama. The Alabama Architectural Foundation is custodian for the Biggin Memorial Fund of the Auburn University College of Architecture, Design and Construction and Tuskegee Institute's Taylor Loan Fund. Both are student loan funds available to fourth and fifth year students of art or architecture.
