The 2014 Nicolas Quintana Scholars were recently announced. Cynthia Parada and Dominique Chalmers are the Design 7/8 Student Scholarship Award recipients. Each student is receiving $1,000 from the Nicolas Quintana Scholarship Fund. The Nicolas Quintana Scholarship Fund was made to benefit students in the Department of Architecture at Florida International University in the memory of architect and educator Nicolas Quintana.
On Tuesday, March 4th, the 2014 Nicolas Quintana Scholar Luncheon was held at the Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture building. The luncheon was attended by the two Scholars, Brian Schriner (Dean of the College of Architecture + The Arts), John Stuart (Associate Dean for Cultural and Community Engagement), Jason Chandler (Chair of the Department of Architecture), and Isabel Quintana, the widow of the late Emeritus Professor Nicolas Quintana.
