BARBARA IGLESIAS

2018-19 BERGMEYER SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

"Winning the Bergmeyer Scholarship and Mentorship Experience through PAVE has been one of the highlights of my Master's program. As a graduate student winning a scholarship is always an immense help to alleviate the financial pressures that come with every semester. The privilege to be able to visit such an amazing studio on top of that, is just icing on the cake. My trip to Boston was such a great experience thanks to everyone at Bergmeyer! Not only was I able to see and learn about fascinating projects both past and current, but they were also incredibly welcoming. I would not have been able to have this great adventure without PAVE leaders such as Dash Nagel. To future winners: Congrats! and I know you will enjoy it as much as I did!"

The scholarship allowed me to travel and explore the country and get a real appreciation for the Italian way of living. I couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity provided by PAVE.”

2013 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

"Receiving the PAVE scholarship allowed me to take the last few steps I needed to achieve my goals. I was a full time Interior Architecture Student at CSULB supporting myself through school, which meant long hours and many sleepless nights. During my last, and most important year in the program, I found that my education was slowly falling from being my first priority. It was hard to find a balance between supporting myself, focusing on school..."
