When architects practice their passion, they honor their calling to serve the public good. The Architecture Foundation of Georgia was established to foster that passion, to support good works, and to enhance public understanding about the value of architecture.

We believe architecture helps create more healthy, sustainable, meaningful, and beautiful buildings and communities.

To advance this mission, the Architecture Foundation of Georgia awards scholarships to recognize rising design talent and to stoke social engagement; we shine a light on community builders and citizen architects for the examples they set; and we seek partnerships with like-minded people from every creative enterprise to advance the cause of decent shelter for Georgia families in need.

The Architecture Foundation of Georgia thrives on and seeks the support of everyone who agrees that like architecture the cause of social justice is a big and worthy project, one we can only build by working together one day at a time. Please join us in this effort.

The average debt of an architecture graduate is near $50,000. To help with these costs, the Architecture Foundation of Georgia has provided numerous opportunities for scholarships for architecture students at all levels of schooling. Since 1971, the Foundation has provided over $110,000 of scholarship and grant monies to deserving students in the State of Georgia.
