The DLA Architects, Ltd. THINK [ABOUT ARCHITECTURE] is an opportunity for talented graduating students to demonstrate the role that architecture plays in their lives. The specific purpose of the scholarship is:
  1. to promote an understanding of the built environment and how people interact with it, especially schools;
  2. to foster a genuine interest in the societal value of architecture as an art form and an enhancement to the general quality of life; and
  3. to encourage high school students to pursue higher education, especially in architecture.
  The Illinois Drafting Educators Association is an Illinois not-for-profit professional education organization with a mission of advancing the drafting occupation through better education.
