The Architecture Foundation of Georgia (AFGA) was established in 1971 to support and enhance public understanding of the value of architecture in creating more healthy, sustainable, meaningful, and beautiful buildings and communities. To advance this mission, we invest in the next generation of architects who will create diverse spaces, places, and communities.
Today’s high cost of education poses a significant challenge to students seeking professional degrees in architecture. The average cost of tuition for a bachelor of architecture degree is $19,800 – $26,500 per year; while the average cost for a master’s in architecture is about $30,000 per year. The average debt of an architectural degree is $38,175. In fact, research shows that every $1,000 in increased tuition costs leads to a 5% enrollment drop.
You can help.
The Foundation hopes to continue its legacy of investment in future architecture leaders by raising funds to cover its scholarship programs. Join us by contributing to the Beyond 2020 campaign. Our goal is to surpass our 2020 $20,000 and 2021 $21,000 investments in scholarships to students at SCAD, Kennesaw, and Georgia Tech for the year 2022.
Our success depends on your support. We kicked off our Beyond 2020 campaign on GivingTuesday – November 30, 2021. GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and their world. GivingTuesday kicks off the generosity season this year by inspiring people to give back on November 30th, and throughout the year.
