Supporting the Architecture department helps us prepare students to be at the forefront of their discipline as they enter the workforce. Please consider a donation to one of the following funds.
In-Situ Fund #631
With the B.Arch coming on-line (first graduating class spring 2020), the M.Arch is restructuring, in an effort to become a draw regionally for students. The program incorporates a year of study in Indianapolis starting this fall 2019. A goal for this program is to consistently incorporate a design-build learning experience for our students, proposed to be an affordable, energy efficient home in Indianapolis. Proposed timeline is spring 2020 design and, if we can get financial traction, the build in summer, fall 2020. We hope to make this an annual effort as we see it as an excellent educational opportunity for our students to learn through making. The In-Situ fund, initiated through the generous contributions from Hal Kovert and John Hawkins (Kovert Hawkins Architects), is a fund intended to facilitate connecting our students with hands-on learning through making. Your contribution to this fund will be used to jumpstart this build + design annual effort described above to teach and positively impact local communities.
Architecture General Fund #607
We are trying to enhance the promise of both B.Arch and existing M.Arch. To this end, we are trying to showcase student work in ALL courses via a student-generated publication of all student work being produced each year; the title of this publication is Aggregate. (GLUE remains as a CAPstudent initiative, showcasing work from all units with support from the college.) We believe the quality of our students’ work is exemplary and hope to use the journal for marketing to pull in more students. A contribution to the Architecture general fund for the department will help realize this annual student-led publication to attract the best students to our program.
TEG Architects Design Prize #695
This past fall, alumni Wayne Estopinal restructured his contributions to the department into one fund to support the success of the B.Arch. The TEG Architects Design Prize was established to “support Ball State University’s Bachelor of Architecture students in their pursuit of exemplary architectural design investigations that are informed by substantive research and are professionally communicated.” This scholarship was intended to incentivize the best student work accomplished in the final semester of the B.Arch program (will roll-out spring 2020). Contributions to the fund will support the ambitions of this ongoing scholarship.
David Hermansen Scholarship Fund #655
Finally, the Historic Preservation program remains a unique opportunity for many students. The David Hermansen Scholarship fund is money to support the historic preservation graduate program (MSHP). We value historic preservation as an essential component of placemaking design. We hope that some of our B.Arch students will pursue a graduate degree – with MSHP being potentially a desirable option. This fund, in honor of one of our founding faculty, will be used to financially support excellent students pursuing a graduate degree in Historic Preservation.
