As part of Engberg Anderson Architects’ ongoing support of the School of Architecture and Urban Planning, EA presented a new Diversity and Inclusion Scholarship to M.Arch student Shavonte Grant. Grant recently presented to EA leadership on her work and research. Her career objective as an architect is to create socially sustaining spaces to achieve healthier and more equitable cities.
“Engberg Anderson was pleased to begin this new scholarship focused on improving equity within our profession,” said Bill Robison, Partner. “Targeting the funds for students from Milwaukee and the surrounding counties gives us a chance to lift up talented students who share the same home and understand the needs of this community. Shavonte was a perfect first recipient for us as she explores the transition from public art to architecture. Her focus on projects that impact the community fits so well with the work we seek and do in the cities we call home. We look forward to helping her grow as a professional through a summer internship and remaining involved with her work as she continues in the graduate program at SARUP in the coming year.”
SARUP is grateful for dedicated partners like Engberg Anderson, who are essential catalysts in equipping students who will plan, make and build for the future.
