SOM Foundation Announces New Robert L. Wesley Award
The SOM Foundation is pleased to announce the creation of the SOM Foundation Robert L. Wesley Award. The new award will support BIPOC undergraduate students enrolled in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, or structural engineering programs across the US. The $10,000 award is an unrestricted scholarship that aims to support the academic development of the student. In addition to the economic support, recipients of the award will be paired with one of the jurors who will act as their mentor for the year. The award honors Robert L. Wesley, the first Black partner at SOM.
