    The Bank of America Charitable Foundation’s Student Leaders® Program is accepting applications for the 2021 Student Leaders® program for Juniors and Seniors

    Deadline:  January 29, 2021  9:59 pm PST

    Since its inception in 2005, the Bank of America Student Leaders Program has recognized more than 2,500 exemplary high school juniors and seniors who have a passion for improving their communities.  The program helps students gain a greater understanding of how nonprofits create impact in the community and develops them as the next generation of community leaders through two components:

    • A summer eight-week paid internship with a nonprofit organization selected by the bank. This internship is designed to provide opportunities for the students to develop and apply leadership skills through hands-on work experience, while raising their awareness of community issues addressed by their Host Organization. 
    • The week-long, all-expense paid Student Leaders Summit in Washington, D.C. from July 12-17, 2021. This week will be part of the 8-week experience.  
    • Students can apply for the program by going to www.bankofamerica.com/studentleaders.

    LPA Interdisciplinary Diversity Scholarship Program

     Deadline for graduating seniors to apply is January 29, 2021 at 3:00 pm CT

    We’re proud to announce that LPA is working with Scholarship America® to launch a new scholarship for high school seniors from underrepresented demographics - Black/African American, Hispanic or Latinx, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander and Women of any race/ethnicity – who are considering a career in the design professions. The Interdisciplinary Diversity Scholarship Program will award a $5,000 scholarship annually for up to five students and is renewable for the 4-5 years until a professional bachelor’s degree is earned.

     We’re proud of this new program, which provides us an opportunity to encourage and support high school students to pursue a career in the design of our built environment.  We believe these students should feel that anything is possible regardless of their starting point.  Our employees want to walk alongside the recipients, to grow, support and mentor them to successfully attain their professional degree and advance the diversity of architecture, interior, landscape architecture and the engineering disciplines that serve our communities and contribute to the built environment.

     Emerging professionals from our firm have created a video that shares more about the professional disciplines that make up our integrated design firm.  

    Here are two important links to more information about the scholarship:

    SCHOLARSHIPS

    Where do I Find Scholarships?

    Many college scholarships are available to 9th-12th graders!

    The internet offers a variety of free scholarship search sites (see below). Be wary of any entity that guarantees you will be selected for a scholarship. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you think you are a victim of a scholarship scam or financial aid fraud, please report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or email oig.hotline@ed.gov.
