Student Scholarships

Student debt is an ongoing challenge for our students. We strive to expand our long-term scholarship portfolio by increasing the number of endowed and fully funded scholarships. This is a gift that will grow over time and support students in perpetuity.

$25,000 is the minimum investment to fully fund an endowed scholarship.

 

The SACD Building Fund

Our newest initiative is targeted at an ambitious upgrade and expansion of the current HMS-Architecture building on the USF Tampa campus.

The School of Architecture & Community Design will soon initiate a substantial renovation of the facilities in our existing building, HMS-Architecture, on the Tampa campus. The plan includes renovations to the design studios, critique spaces, shop facilities and upgrade the additional new space the school will obtain within the building. There are many opportunities for involvement!

Support of the academic mission of the USF School of Architecture & Community Design can come in many forms. For questions and to discuss specific ideas, please contact SACD Director Robert MacLeod to set up a meeting: rmacleod@usf.edu or (813) 974-6015.
