The AIA Orlando Golf Tournament for Scholarships began in 1989 when a group of architects wanted to create opportunities for students to pursue higher education in the field of architecture right here in Central Florida.
The tournament has evolved over the years, and now brings architects and design professionals together with vendors and allied professionals from A/E/C industries for a day of friendly competition to raise scholarship funds for students facing financial hardship. Proceeds from the tournament will provide scholarships for students studying architecture in America’s only 2+2+2 architectural degree program.
Today, in its 30th year, the tournament has raised over $300,000.
