In honor of Sho-Ping Chin, FAIA, we are thrilled to offer a grant opportunity for recipients to attend the 2017 AIA Women’s Leadership Summit in Washington D.C, September 14-16.
Sho-Ping was a Principal at Payette and in 2009 the founding leader of the inaugural AIA Women’s Leadership Summit. Tragically Sho-Ping succumbed to cancer in 2015, but her legacy of women’s leadership continues. The memorial fund established in her name is focused on funding the development of future women leaders in architecture. The fund is offered in partnership with the AIA.
Recipients of the grant will receive funding to cover:
- Registration costs for the 2017 AIA Women’s Leadership Summit
- Travel and expense reimbursement of up to $700
Grants are available for mid-career women architects who are advancing towards leadership roles. The 2017 recipients will be the first class of Sho-Ping Ching Leaders. There are five grants available.
Apply here by 11:59PM, August 9, 2017.
Grant recipients will be notified by August 21, 2017.
