Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (MAPP) is dedicated to meeting the economic, environmental and social challenges of the 21st century. Through demonstrated excellence in planning, designing, developing and preserving our built environment, MAPP’s community of makers strives to make a more beautiful, more just and more sustainable world.
Scholarships and Faculty Support
Scholarships and Fellowships
We will raise funds and provide student scholarships and fellowships at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. It will significantly expand choices for students to study abroad, gain experiential knowledge and develop expertise in new and innovative ways.
By generating new funds to endow 4 professorships and 1 chair, the campaign will raise the scholarly and creative profile of MAPP’s faculty, especially in sustainability, resilience, technology and the built environment.
Programs and Initiatives
Establishing new interdisciplinary programs and initiatives will allow MAPP to set itself apart from other schools of its kind and further solidify its reputation as a world-class innovator in the exploration and transformation of the built environment:
First Year Fellows
The First Year Fellows program will fund outstanding first-year graduate students who seek to join MAPP and discover new ways to make the built environment most sustainable.
The new undergraduate scholarship for Florence Study Abroad will expand our students’ horizons by enabling them to participate in a semester-long Maryland-in-Florence (Architecture) program.
New Professional Centers
The new Student Study and Resource Center, and the upgraded Digital Fabrication Lab, will become state-of-the-art professional centers where our students will challenge convention and excel in creativity and innovation.
Expanded Studio Space
The expanded Community Outreach and Service-Learning Studios will allow our students to develop vital new skills in real-world situations—skills that will propel them into leadership positions in their chosen professions.
