Mission

The George W. Anderson, Jr. Award may be awarded to graduate students studying in the School of Architecture who demonstrate through their work "an exceptional level of attention to detail and dedication to beneficially impacting the community" through a completed project.


Impact  


Graduate students applying for this award are required to submit a Pecha Kucha style presentation that calls attention to the craft and detailing of their work. Designs are not to be new designs, but are expected to be designs that have been completed to date.

Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total) with the images advancing automatically. Applicants will deliver their presentations in front of their fellow graduate students and the review team during a live event. The review team consisting of a jury made up of SoA faculty and staff members makes the final determination of the award recipient(s). The winner(s) will be announced at the Spring Awards Ceremony.


Eligibility & Schedule


This award is open to graduate students in the School of Architecture. It is anticipated that a 1st place award in the amount of $3,000 and a 2nd place award in the amount of $2,000 will be awarded. A maximum of two awards may be awarded to qualifying students at the discretion of the selection committee.

The School of Architecture will release the application for the next award cycle in the spring of 2019.
