Register: 2024 AFO Scholarship Workshops

AFO Scholarships support future design and building professionals and encourage people from diverse backgrounds to participate in the process of designing and building our world. We currently award four scholarships for students studying design and building professions in Oregon. Learn more about AFO Scholarships.

What to expect: During these workshops we will cover eligibility, the application process, and how to prepare a successful application. Attendees will receive tips and feedback on scholarship essays, portfolios/work samples, and more. You are welcome to attend one or both workshops and don't need to attend the first workshop to attend the second. Workshops are free and open to eligible scholarship candidates.
