Contributions to TAF

TAF’s success and strength comes from the generosity and goodwill of its donors, which include architects, architecture firms, and Texas AIA components, as well as other associations, organizations, and individuals dedicated to excellence in architectural education.

The foundation is able to expand and enhance its assets by:

  • Memorial gifts to TAF from architects and interested individuals, groups, or corporations in memory of deceased friends, or in commemoration of outstanding events or persons;
  • Bequests in the wills of architects and other interested persons;
  • Regular contributions from architects, AIA chapters, and other interested persons and organizations; and
  • Endowments or special designated grants by architectural firms, businesses, industry, and interested foundations.

TAF is a qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organization and all contributions, personal or corporate, are tax deductible in the manner and to the extent provided by section 170 of the IRS code. The Internal Revenue Service also has ruled that nonprofit foundations may properly make gifts to TAF.

Scholarships for Future Architects

The Texas Society of Architects is actively involved in assisting students who plan to pursue careers in architecture. We cooperate with our sister organization, the Texas Architectural Foundation, to make grants and scholarships available to architecture students enrolled in one of the eight Texas universities that offer NAAB accredited architecture programs.

TAF scholarships are awarded to undergraduate, graduate, or post-graduate architecture students who are enrolled in a Texas university that participates in the Foundation’s annual scholarship program. Generally, TAF scholarships are available for students who have completed at least two years of an architecture program. Some AIA chapters require applicants to be from their area of the state; in such cases, Texas counties served by the chapter are listed in the scholarship announcement.

Students must apply for TAF scholarships through their school’s architecture department. Each school provides information on available TAF scholarships for students at that university and sets their own application deadline. Eligible architecture students must complete a TAF scholarship application. Several scholarships require students to submit their portfolio (digital) or other application materials in addition to the completed TAF application.

Each school has its own scholarship application deadline and committee process. TAF scholarships are announced to each school of architecture early in the calendar year for the upcoming academic year that begins in the fall. The application and selection process are conducted during the spring semester.
