The awards are granted based on merit and recognize well-rounded, hardworking students who perform well in their area of study. Recipients have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 and receive a positive endorsement from their advisor and/or another faculty member. FRIENDS scholarships are available to Bachelor of Architecture students entering their fifth year and interior design, construction administration, and architecture students entering their fourth year. To qualify, all applicants must be full-time students, submit a brief essay, and complete an application form. This year's essay topic was "If you ran your own firm, how would best you best manage your practice in this highly competitive environment?" Students were also chosen based on a high level of design and presentation of their selected project submissions.
