"Scholarship allows for creativity in the midst of judgment and therefore we hope to honor the thrill of seeking with this gift." say Dykers and Molinar. "Willingness to expand the traditional definitions of architecture in order to pursue the tangential, with the goal of influencing one's architectural studies and future careers should be rewarded. With this scholarship, we honor the heritage of independent thinking at the UT Austin School of Architecture that so greatly influenced us." — soa.utexas.edu
The Snøhetta Endowed Scholarship in Architecture, established by Craig Dykers and Elaine Molinar, will make its first award to a student recipient in fall 2012.
