MOA Scholarship Award + Summer Internship Programs

MOA Scholarship Award + Summer Internship Programs

MOA ARCHITECTURE (MOA) would like to make you aware of a scholarship and learning experience opportunity we hope you can share with your students. We offer an annual merit based private scholarship award + paid summer internship (plus paid travel and living expense reimbursement) to students in accredited architectural programs. Total value to the students is typically in excess of $11,000.


It is our intent that this Scholarship Award + Internship opportunity rewards and challenges students with practical experience in concert with the individual’s educational experience, and further stimulates their passion and interest in a career in architecture. The summer of 2015 will be the 8thyear of our program, and it has proven to be a rewarding experience for the students and MOA.


For summer 2015, we offer the Robert L. Outland Women and Minority Scholarship + Internship. Named in honor of our founding principal and an Oklahoma Choctaw Native American, this award was established to recognize and reward entering fifth year, or graduate level women and minority students in an accredited architectural program (who will be returning to school in Fall 2015 following the internship). This Scholarship + Internship is specifically intended for students who demonstrate their passion for architecture, high academic achievement and design ability.


We have chosen to limit opportunity on an every-other year basis (odd numbered years) specifically for those under-represented in the profession - women and minority students through the Robert L. Outland Scholarship. In alternating even numbered years (next opportunity summer 2016) we offer the Kiyoshi Murata Scholarship + Internship, which is open to all students.


Submittals are due in January 2015, so we ask that you share this opportunity for the summer of 2015 with your students during this fall term and invite them to visit our Scholarship + Internship page where they can learn more about MOA ARCHITECTURE, this opportunity and the application/submission requirements.


To help make communication of the opportunity as easy as possible, you can simply forward this e-mail to your architectural students. I am also including in this e-mail a link to an informational flyer so that you will be able to download and e-mail it to your architecture students or print and post the flyer.
