2024 Osborn Consulting Scholarship

The purpose of this scholarship is to eradicate the historic barriers that have prevented BIPOC individuals from accessing these professions throughout the history of the United States. Our scholarship founders strongly believe that the design challenges faced by the AEC industry in modern times can only be solved by a diverse set of voices and perspectives. We are excited to witness the practical and creative design solutions scholarship recipients will create in the future!
