MANHATTAN — A recently established scholarship by Momenta, an Overland Park architecture, planning and design firm, will provide financial assistance to a fourth-year student in the department of architecture at Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design, or APDesign.
The recipient of the new Momenta Leadership Scholarship, which will benefit a student with demonstrated leadership skills, will be selected in the spring of each year with the award being available in the fall.
"I greatly appreciate Momenta's establishing this scholarship, which will be aimed at students who have shown their excellence in both performance in the classroom and commitment to design leadership," said Tim de Noble, dean of APDesign.
"I have known the core group at Momenta for many years and their passion for excellence is inspirational. Their generosity in bringing their exceptional leadership to K-State in the new Momenta Leadership Scholarship is a hugely beneficial gain for our students," said Matthew Knox, professor and head of the architecture department.
"Momenta is excited to help support an excellent program at K-State. We hope this scholarship will further encourage strong leadership qualities in the architects of tomorrow," said Scott Pashia, principal at Momenta.
