The Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation has announced a new annual scholarship program benefiting Department of Architecture students at Howard University.

This year’s grant of $30,000 will support the academic and professional development of three current architecture students at Howard University, College of Engineering and Architecture. Intended to increase professional mobility, the program also includes a paid summer internship at Beyer Blinder Belle for one scholarship recipient.

The 2021 awardees include Dean Bailey (’23), Khadija Callender (’21), and Jemima Pierre (’23), each of whom will receive a $10,000 scholarship. In addition, Khadija Callender will join BBB as a summer intern in the Washington, DC office. All three 2021 awardees are pictured above; images provided courtesy of the awardees.

Going forward, the scholarship and paid internship will be awarded annually to one architecture student entering their third or fourth year of college at Howard University.

Through fellowships, grants, and other initiatives, the Foundation engages the full cycle of design, from inspiring young people to enter the profession, to supporting graduate research, to enabling thoughtful, socially-conscious design and planning that directly benefits communities.

This mission is inspired by the core values of Beyer Blinder Belle, which from its founding defined an approach to design focused on architecture empowering people—through their interaction on streets and in neighborhoods, and through their connections to the surrounding built environment.
