AIA Mid-Missouri Scholarship
AIA Mid-Missouri annually awards a scholarship to an upper-level student of architecture who lives in one of the counties we serve. The Roy J. Pallardy Memorial Scholarship was established in 1985 by the Mid-Missouri chapter and his former firm to honor the memory of Roy J. Pallardy, AIA, and to recognize his outstanding service to his profession, his community and the chapter while practicing architecture in Mid-Missouri. Pallardy was one of the charter members of AIA Mid-Missouri so it is fitting that we honor him in this way.
The purpose of the scholarship award is to recognize, encourage and assist promising young Mid-Missouri architectural students in their academic studies, and to encourage them to contribute their talents to the advancement of the profession in the Mid-Missouri area. The amount of the scholarship stipend is usually $2,000 including $1,000 from the local Chapter and a matching grant from AIA National.
To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:
- Reside in one of the 21 counties that make up AIA Mid-Missouri. (See map here.)
- Be a first-professional-degree student, currently enrolled in an architectural program at an Accredited School of Architecture, and have completed their third year by the application deadline.
- Currently be enrolled as a full-time student planning to continue toward a Bachelors or Masters Degree in Architecture.
- Not be an immediate family member of a current AIA Mid-Missouri member (spouse, son or daughter).
- Not be currently employed by an AIA Mid-Missouri member, except in temporary summer employment, or as a student enrolled in an Architecture Intern program at an Accredited School of Architecture.
More information and application documents are available from Mike Kleffner, AIA (email@example.com), or other local architects. Application deadline is September 30 of each year. Announcement of the recipient is usually made in November and the scholarship awarded in December.
