AIAVT Announces the Carol Miklos Community Outreach Grant

By Sarah O Donnell and Jesse Beck


AIA Vermont is pleased to announce a new grant initiative, named in honor of Carol Miklos, who served as AIA Vermont’s Executive Director from 2008 until 2018. This award is intended to create a funding source to support initiatives which have the potential to foster engagement with architecture and design in Vermont's communities.


During her tenure with the organization, Carol’s steady hand at management helped to grow the chapter and position it as a resource to members and the larger community, as evidenced in the many activities and initiatives she oversaw. Her energy, enthusiasm and positive personal approach quickly won over all that she encountered, and helped achieve success for AIA Vermont and its members.  In recognition of Carol’s extraordinary commitment to Vermont’s architectural community over the past decade, this new grant will help carry that energy and enthusiasm forward.


The grant will be awarded in two rounds:

  • The first round of applications are due April 1. 
  • The second round of applications will be due September 1. 

This grant aims to support initiatives and special funding requests that are aligned with the mission of AIAVT.  Applications may be submitted by AIA Members, architecture students, as well as the general public.
