The Architecture and Design Foundation, through the Bill & Jean Booziotis Scholarship Fund, is pleased to award a grant to The University of Texas at Arlington College of Architecture, Planning, and Public Affairs (CAPPA) to provide emergency aid support for architecture students who have been adversely affected by COVID-19.

UTA’s student population is one of the most diverse in the country, and many students are the first in their family to pursue a college degree. We have seen that even a slight disruption in completing their education can create a significant long-lasting barrier towards earning a diploma. Many students who work part time to pay for their tuition now find themselves unemployed while others are scrambling to make decisions about their education that they had not anticipated when the spring semester began. The allocated funds will support eight undergraduate, architecture-declared majors with vetted requests for emergency assistance during these unprecedented times.

As of today, the University has provided support and relief for students ranging from offering access to the on-campus food pantry, to requesting specific help from the student Emergency Assistance Fund, to applying for federal stimulus funds. The Architecture and Design Foundation is pleased to offer an immediate solution to help address the gravity of students’ needs and allow them much-needed continuity towards completing their education. By supporting the future generation, we can strengthen and enrich the future of design and its impact within our communities.


The Architecture and Design Foundation awards a variety of scholarships and travel/research fellowships to support high school and college architecture students, as well as young architects just beginning their careers. Learn more
