Hoffmann Diversity Advancement Scholarship – Inaugural Year
The Connecticut Architecture Foundation, in partnership with Hoffmann Architects and Engineers, a Connecticut-based architecture and engineering firm specializing in building exteriors, is pleased to offer this scholarship, starting in 2023, to students from underrepresented racial or ethnic groups who are seeking degrees in architecture or engineering.
Internship Opportunity with Hoffmann Architects and Engineers
Hoffmann Architects + Engineers may offer scholarship recipients the opportunity for a paid internship in one of the firm’s three offices (New Haven CT, New York NY, and Alexandria VA). As a practice specializing in a unique niche of the architecture and engineering profession – the design and rehabilitation of the building enclosure – Hoffmann can provide students with practical experience in diagnosis and detailing of exterior envelope systems that they likely would not be exposed to in their architecture or engineering studies.
The internship is optional and declining the offer of an intern position does not necessitate forfeiting the scholarship. Internships are not guaranteed to awardees and are pending COVID restrictions and other logistical considerations.
