Globe University-Woodbury partners with the Society of American Registered Architects (SARA) Minnesota Council to award a $500 scholarship to students in the architectural drafting and design program. Globe University will then match that amount, awarding a student a total of $1,000 in scholarships toward the fall 2013 quarter.
Students interested in the scholarship will be judged by a representative from SARA in a design charette (a short design competition using AutoCAD) on Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Globe University-Woodbury campus (please see event details below).
“This is a great opportunity for our students to not only get a chance to be awarded a $1,000 scholarship toward their education, but it also is a wonderful experience for them to illustrate their skills to a well-known organization in the architectural industry,” said Heather Scavo, architectural drafting and design program chair at Globe University-Woodbury. “Not to mention, scholarships and competitions such as these look great on a resume.”

SARA’s goal is to establish a link between their organization and students within the architecture industry. SARA was formed by a man who believed that membership in an architectural profession should be open to anyone who carries an architectural license regardless of their role in the building and design industry. SARA believes in a marvelous principle of “Architect Helping Architect”, it is set apart in that the Society of American Registered Architects is not self-serving and competitive but truly open in its membership and attitude.
