AIA Philadelphia Golf Committee Creates Matthew J. Koenig Memorial Scholarship

Matthew J. Koenig, AIA served as a co-chair of the AIA Philadelphia Golf Committee for over 20 years. He did so because he believed in the importance of supporting and advocating for the architectural profession. Matt also was someone who loved spending time with his friends in the AEC industry, especially during the annual Golf Outing. On behalf of the AIA Philadelphia Board and Golf Committee, we are eternally grateful to Matt's dedication to our organization and we miss him dearly.

To acknowledge our friend and colleague Matt Koenig, the AIA Philadelphia Golf Committee has created a scholarship for existing Temple University students in the Architecture program, either Undergraduate or Graduate students may apply.  This scholarship was created to honor Matt's passion and commitment to bettering the profession of architecture. Individuals who meet the following criteria are invited to apply:

  • Current students at Temple University enrolled in their architecture program, either undergraduate or graduate.
  • Identify as Female, Black, Indigenous, Person of Color, and/or Latinx.

Students may use scholarship funds on tuition, class books or supplies, housing expenses, and transportation to and from campus.

Applications will be available shortly.
