Support Women & Diversity in Architecture!

Donate to Fireclay's Advancement Scholarship for Black Female Architects Today


$53,170 towards $50,000

Architecture should reflect the diverse society it serves—but Black women are vastly underrepresented in the industry. Current data shows that just 0.4% of licensed architects in the USA are Black Women. We’re working to change that.

Why Such A Lack of Diversity?

The Architects Foundation has identified three major hurdles that BIPOC architects face on the path to licensure:

1. A lack of awareness of the profession at the K-12 level

2. A lack of belonging due to the current demographics of the industry

3. Particularly for Black women, disparities emerge regarding firm support for licensure, income gaps, and tuition debt

We’re Taking Action

Representation in design matters, which is why Fireclay Tile has partnered with the Architects Foundation for a 4th year to sponsor a Diversity Advancement Scholarship for Black women pursuing architecture.

This year, we’re aiming to raise $50,000. Fireclay has committed to donating $25,000, and we invite you to help us reach our goal to support the education of future architects
