History of the Architectural Education Foundation

The Architectural Education Foundation, AIA Colorado was created by five devoted AIA Colorado members on 23, 1934 to “advance the interest of the profession of architecture in the State of Colorado.”

This special fund was established by Robert Fuller, FAIA, William E. Fisher, FAIA, George H. Williamson, FAIA, William Bowman, AIA and Fred Montjoy, AIA. Their vision for the Architectural Education Foundation was to create a fun that would award scholarships, grants and prizes to advance the profession.On December 18, 1944, the Trust Fund was transferred to AIA Colorado. Robert K. Fuller was designated its Permanent Trustee. On February 16, 1961, the Fund was incorporated as a separate, tax free, nonprofit corporation.

In 1961 the first scholarship was awarded by the Architectural Education Foundation, 27 years for the five founders’ originally created the fund.

Since the first $600 scholarship was presented in 1961, the Architectural Education Foundation, AIA Colorado has awarded more than $800,000 in scholarships, grants and other awards to more than two hundred-fifty students, architects and teachers.

Over the past forty years, architects, faculty members and students alike, have returned to school for study or have had a research project funded because they received assistance through the Architectural Education Foundation, AIA Colorado.
