Helene Combs Dreiling Annual Scholarship

The AIA Fellows of Virginia is proud to announce the formation of the Helene Combs Dreiling Annual Scholarship to honor its namesake, now serving as AIA Virginia Executive Director/CEO, for her generous contributions to the profession.

“Our goal is to benefit future leaders in the field of architecture. This scholarship fund will give young architects opportunities such as access to AIA Convention Fellowships, a professional development City Summer and mentoring programs,” says VCU University Architect Mary Patton Cox, FAIA. “Throughout her career, Helene has championed the needs of emerging professional architects and advocated on their behalf, not just in her current role, but also as president of AIA Blue Ridge, president of AIA Virginia, Regional Director for the Virginias, staff vice president of the American Institute of Architects and as national president of the American Institute of Architects. Helene, herself, was elevated to fellowship in 2000.”

So far, the AIA Fellows of Virginia have raised more than half of the total endowment goal and are continuing to accept donations. They expect the scholarship to be fully endowed by the end of next year so that scholarships can be available in 2017. The Helene Combs Dreiling Annual Scholarship will be awarded to students, interns and young professionals up to 10 years after receiving their accredited degree.
