HBG Design is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the University of Arkansas International Design Scholarship.

Molly Evans received the Award of Excellence for her work as part of a study abroad in Mexico. Derek Hukill was honored with an Award of Merit for his work during his program in Rome. Honorable mention was awarded to Ashley Evans for her design work during her study abroad in Mexico.

As a design-oriented rather than strictly academic-based scholarship program, it provides an annual prize of $5,000 to a rising 5th year architecture student or team of students who participate in one of the School’s approved international programs, including both semesters at the Rome Studies Center and the summer in Mexico. The purpose of the award is to recognize these architecture students for exceptional work completed during this inspiring period abroad. Students must submit their work in an established format, which will be judged by a jury comprised of HBG Design and School of Architecture officials. The winner(s) are announced each year at an All-School event in the fall.

“The International Design Competition is one example of our firm’s commitment to preparing the next generation of architects,” says Mark Weaver, FAIA, HBG Design Principal and an alumni of UA’s School of Architecture. “Through our financial investments, mentoring programs, and participation in design reviews at the School, HBG Design is illustrating its commitment to the future of the architectural profession.”
