“It’s hard to put into words how grateful I am for my scholarship. A philanthropist makes a donation, but, for me, that donation is impacting my whole life and future. To know that someone felt they should invest in my career, in my work, and in my ideas is an amazing feeling.”

Corie Yaguchi (B.Arch)

SCI-Arc’s Leadership Circle caters exclusively to Southern California’s most generous enthusiasts of architecture and speculative innovation. Participation is most notably drawn from highly influential entrepreneurs, educators, business executives, and thought leaders, who are well informed of the advances that align the fields of art, design, technology, and innovation with the ever-evolving landscape of architecture.

Annual leadership gifts generated by this distinctive group provide the necessary resources to fund scholarships enabling SCI-Arc students every opportunity to advance their studies, firmly placing them at the forefront as leading decision makers in the fields of architecture and design.

Throughout the year, Leadership Circle members gather to experience specially created, invitation only engagements and programs, and receive VIP access and preferential seating at selected SCI-Arc lectures and events.

We invite you to become a member of the Leadership Circle as SCI-Arc remains dedicated to its mission to educate architects who imagine and shape the future.
