The Center For Architecture K-12 Education + Grants program promotes public awareness and a broader appreciation of the important role architecture and design play in our daily lives.
Educational programs include K-12th grade classroom collaborations, youth and family workshops, professional development for teachers, scholarships for architecture and design students, public exhibitions and educational events at the Center for Architecture. Please click here for more information.

The AIA New York State Component also maintains resources for those interested in architecture as a career here. One of their important resources is a list and publication of New York State Schools of Architecture.
