The Association for Women in Architecture – Los Angeles is a 501(c)(6) Professional Education organization dedicated to advancing and supporting the positions of women in architecture and allied fields. Founded in 1922, the national organization of students and professionals grew over the following years. In the 1960’s, when support for professional women broadened, the organization split into local chapters to facilitate better regional representation. The AWA provides support to its members, especially those starting out in their professions and running their own firms, by developing educational programs, lectures and tours, and by providing opportunities for mentoring and mutual support. The AWA also raises money for annual scholarship awards to women students pursuing degrees in architecture or allied fields. A non-profit 501(c)(3) Foundation was formed in 1999 to better facilitate this annual mission, and to soon provide grant opportunities for women already practicing in their professions.
