At ArchDaily, we’ve always supported the WIAfund and how they support women to become professionals and leaders in Architecture in America. That’s why we’re very happy to share this news with all our readers. Today is the day the WIAfund has been waiting for.
Jessica Vitali, an intern at Newman Architects and the 2nd WIAfund award recipient, has passed all of her Architecture Registration Exams. “This is what the award was established for: to lend a hand, and make a small difference, for women emerging professionals in the field.” says WIAfund Founder Tabitha Ponte.
The WIAfund, awarded at least twice per year, helps women by gifting the study materials for the exam. The next award, scheduled to close on August 31st, is open for the first time to 1st year undergraduate architecture students.
