Architects Foundation/Architects Foundation Payette Sho-Ping Chin Memorial Academic Scholarship

The Payette Sho-Ping Chin Memorial Academic Scholarship was established with the architecture firm Payette to support a woman studying architecture within a NAAB-accredited Bachelor's or Master's degree program. Sho-Ping, a fellow and leader in the AIA, was a long-time principal and healthcare practice leader at Payette. She was a talented and compassionate architect who was fiercely determined to design healthcare architecture of the highest caliber for those in need. Sho-Ping was a wonderful mentor and instilled in her teams a sense of camaraderie and commitment to design. As a founder of the AIA Women's Leadership Summit, held biennially, Sho-Ping was instrumental in defining the national discourse for Women in Design. The $10,000 scholarship will be awarded to a student who will be entering at least their third year of undergraduate or any level of graduate study within an accredited architecture program. Previous Payette Sho-Ping Chin Memorial Academic Scholarship recipients are eligible to reapply in subsequent years. To help the scholarship recipient establish contacts within the profession, she will be assigned a senior mentor from Payette for the scholarship year.
