At this year’s Heritage Ball – the annual fundraiser and gala for the Center for Architecture – BS Architecture student Nelson De Jesus was the recipient of the AIA New York Chapter and Center for Architecture Foundation’s Design Scholarship.  Each year, one of the Heritage Ball honorees selects the institutional recipient of the scholarship, with the school dean then nominating the student beneficiary of the merit-based award.  This year, Richard Kahan, founder and CEO of the Urban Assembly, designated Parsons as the institutional recipient for the scholarship.
