Funding the Scholarship Program
Funding for the AIA Honolulu Scholarship Program comes from the Chapter's general funds which draws its support from key Chapter program. As a local Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), AIA Honolulu applies to receive additional grant support from AIA National to supplement our locally contributed funds. The AIA National Component desires to support local and state Components and/or their affiliated foundations to provide and develop scholarship programs.
