This year’s money will be split between five students in the master’s program for use toward applied entrepreneurial projects and/or internship placements.

Adding to prestige of recognition by the AIA, BGSU’s Department of Architectural and Environmental Design has been invited to participate in the juried AIA Ohio 2016-17 Student Design Award, which is another first! This highly competitive annual show is open only to students from five schools recognized by the AIA in Ohio, of which we are the most recent addition.
