Over the years, a/e ProNet has established various national scholarship funds administered through professional societies. National scholarships are awarded principally to students of architecture and engineering schools where the applicant’s studies emphasize practice management.
a/e ProNet AIA David W. Lakamp Scholarship
(American Institute of Architects Scholarship)
This scholarship was initiated in 1990 and renamed in 1999 for David W. Lakamp. Mr. Lakamp was a founder of a/e ProNet and a trusted advisor to the profession. He left behind a legacy of professionalism and integrity that set new standards in the field of insurance services. The annual award is given to the student who best demonstrates strong interest in practice management. This year, two awards ($5,000 each) will be distributed.
The scholarship is open to fourth-year undergraduates, and graduate students of architecture enrolled in an NAAB-accredited professional degree program. The promotion and selection are handled entirely by AIA. Eligible candidates are required to submit an application to AIA’s national headquarters in Washington, DC, on their standard application form. Submissions are reviewed by jury members of the AIA Practice Management Knowledge Community. Candidates must submit a copy of their transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and an essay on how they would resolve a project management dilemma.
