Initiative to support architecture and design students at Clemson University
COLUMBIA, S.C. (July 1, 2019) – Stevens & Wilkinson (S&W), a full-service architecture, engineering, and interior design firm, announced the establishment of an architectural scholarship at Clemson University in commemoration of the firm’s 100-year anniversary. The firm hopes the scholarship will ignite innovation in design by supporting architecture students at the South Carolina-based institution.
“Given the rising costs of higher education, we wanted to find a way to help develop the next generation of architects and lessen the financial burden of pursuing their dreams of becoming an architect,” said Robby Aull, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP, principal and president of the firm’s South Carolina office. “By offering this scholarship, we hope to create opportunities for some of the brightest young minds in architecture who might not have had the chance to attend Clemson without support.”
The scholarship was created with a commitment of $20,000 to be distributed over the next five years. The purpose of the fund is to provide annual scholarships in the amount of $2,000 each to two students enrolled or planning to enroll in the architecture program at Clemson University. Several of S&W’s architects, interior designers, and engineers are alumni of Clemson, including Aull himself.
“Celebrating our 100th anniversary isn’t just about us, it’s about the work we’ve done to shape the communities we call home,” said Aull. “Creating this scholarship is our way of ensuring there will be more outstanding architects to lead both Stevens & Wilkinson and the industry at-large well into the future.”
