Our Mission

The William McDonough Scholarship Program was developed to encourage education and provide education assistance for postsecondary study.

What is the William McDonough Scholarship Program?

The William McDonough Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to students who are pursuing post secondary study in architecture, design, sustainability, or other related field at an accredited two- or four-year college or university of the student’s choice.  Recipients will have demonstrated outstanding leadership and exceptional academic performance.

Students must have received a high school diploma or equivalent from a U.S. school and must also have a minimum 3.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale or its equivalent. Finally, applicants must be a U.S. citizen and plan to receive a bachelor’s degree.

A leading architect, visionary, and author in sustainable design, William McDonough’s work draws inspiration from living systems and processes.  William McDonough and his firms, McDonough Innovation, William McDonough + Partners, and MBDC encourage all designers who share the same values to pursue their dreams in designing a world our children deserve.
