Funding YAF Efforts: Emerging Professionals Component Grant

The AIA College of Fellows has established a small grants fund, Emerging Professionals Component Grant, to assist AIA components in the development of programs that foster the mission of Young Architects and Associates.

These funds may be used to enhance the activities of an existing Emerging Professionals group or as seed money to help start a new one. Because one of the goals of the component grants program is to make Emerging Professionals groups a vital component activity, an explanation or demonstration of component commitment and support is essential.

The deadline for submission is: Monday, August 16, 2010.
For more information, download the grant criteria and application here.

Some suggestions on your application:
- Avoid requests for food, drink, and travel expenses.
- Show matching funds in your budget. Matching funds may be procured from your Chapter or outside sources.
- Demonstrate how your grant will benefit the largest possible number of young architects/emerging professionals.
- If your program is not selected, apply next year.
