Complimentary Assoc. AIA Membership
New graduates with an accredited degree in architecture are eligible for complimentary membership for up to 18 months and should contact us for details; others should opt for a paid membership. Those who live or work in Manhattan are eligible for New York Chapter membership; other chapters may have different dues rates which may require a fee adjustment.
AIANY 2030 Fund
The 2030 Fund provides student loan debt relief and licensure support for aspiring BIPOC architects pursuing licensure. Mirroring the ambitions of NOMA’s 2030 Diversity Challenge, the fund was created by AIANY in collaboration with nycoba|NOMA in recognition of the unique challenges faced by young BIPOC professionals in pursuing licensure. Successful awardees will receive a one-time payment of up to $2,500 towards student loans. The award also provides recipients with free enrollment in AIANY’s ARE Prep Courses and the opportunity to meet quarterly with an AIANY Board Mentor.
Study Materials Lending Library
From The Architect’s Handbook to Building Codes Illustrated, AIA New York has an array of study materials that members can borrow by following the procedures below.
The chapter regularly hosts ARE events, including Boot Camps, Workshops, Demystifying the ARE, and Got License, which provide a framework for understanding the licensure process and exam.
