Honoring Our Scholars

This annual event is a chance to recognize the current Hatfield Architectural Award and William Hart Scholarship recipients. These awards annually recognize an Oregon architecture student, enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate architecture program at Portland State University or the University of Oregon, for their design promise, commitment to community service, and desire to make a positive impact on the architecture profession.

Held each spring, the celebration brings together around 150 leaders in the designed and built industries to honor the history of these prestigious awards and introduce the current awardees. The event raises funds for the annual monetary awards while providing networking opportunities for current and past scholarship recipients and thought-provoking stories of how leaders in the built environment are contributing to the community.

Watch an interview with our 2021 Hatfield Scholar, Josymar Rodriguez and 2003 Hatfield Award recipient, Nate McCoy.

Scholar Spotlight

Josymar Rodriguez
2021 Hatfield Scholar, University of Oregon

“Creating nurturing spaces for all is the framework in which I strive to build my relations, studies, and service practice. I believe the idea of architecture as nurture can change the way we approach design questions, set the path for our profession to grow in a new direction where women and minorities take the lead, and develop more dignified living environments.” Learn more about our 2021 Hatfield Scholar.
