The Illinois School of Architecture announces the dates for the Summer 2014 Discover Architecture Program for high school students. Two program sessions will be offered: Session I: Sunday, June 15th through Saturday, June 28th and Session II: Sunday, July 6th through Saturday, July 19th. Discover Architecture is a two-week program offered at the School of Architecture at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that provides high school students and beginning college students the opportunity to be introduced to architectural graphics, design, and modeling. Discover Architecture exposes
students to a university atmosphere, complete with dorm living, faculty lectures, and architectural studio.

Throughout the two-week session, students engage in a series of exercises including drafting, modeling, composition, design, and presentation, which lead to a comprehensive architectural design project.

The Architectural Drawing Competition provides a full-tuition scholarship to attend the program while the Jacobs Memorial Scholarship provides a partial tuition to attend the program.
