Katherine Kligerman Fund for Architecture Student Support
What Starts Here Changes the World of Design
Becoming an architect is a dream for many young adults, and The University of Texas School of Architecture is one of the top schools in the nation to help make these dreams become a reality. Unfortunately, architecture school can be a costly investment for students who may not have the funds needed to purchase the necessary supplies and computer software required by the major.
By making a gift to the Katherine Kligerman Fund for Architecture Student Support, your donation will go towards helping design students purchase the supplies they need in order to excel in school.
Architecture school is typically more costly than other majors. Outside of usual school expenses, students are expected to purchase supplies for projects along with the tools and technology needed to create these projects.
While in school, a typical student ends up purchasing:
- A laptop computer (~$2,500)
- An initial drafting supplies kit (~$500)
- A drafting board (~$150)
- Multiple computer software subscriptions (~$250/yr)
- Model building materials (~$500/yr)
- Miscellaneous printing and technology costs (~$200/yr)
Because architecture is a five-year program, students will also have to pay for an additional year of tuition on top of these expenses.
In a time when a majority of young Americans are suffering from the student-loan debt crisis, students need your help more than ever to graduate debt-free.
The University has a minimum requirement of $25,000 to establish an endowment. My goal is to exceed this number. A substantial amount has already been raised but I need your help to make this a significant endowment able to help students who struggle with ever-rising education costs.
Please consider making a generous gift to this effort.
