Architecture Department Scholarships & Awards

The Architecture Department has both need-based and merit-based scholarships. These scholarships and awards have varying criteria that may include financial need, or academic achievement, or exceptional promise in a range of areas related to the field of architecture. 

For consideration, apply by April 17, 2023 for university scholarships and CAED/Architecture Department scholarships via the one-click Cal Poly Scholarships app on your My Cal Poly portal.  (To qualify for need-based ARCH Scholarships, applicants must have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.)

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at financialaid@calpoly.edu.
