December 2, 2015 - Carolyn Gonzales

University of New Mexico School of Architecture & Planning graduate architecture student Rajeeb Hazra is the 2015 Sean F. Mellon Memorial Architectural Scholarship Award Winner, as announced by the Society of American Registered Architects, New York Council (SARA|NY). Hazra was among those who put forth the more than 120 letters of intent and 80 submissions SARA|NY received.

Hazra, who graduates this month, reflected on receiving the scholarship, “Apart from the financial incentive, it's a huge encouragement for me to go forward and kind of tells me I am on the right track. My last two years in the United States have been kind of bumpy, but this award is a perfect confidence booster to end my studies and inspires me to face the challenges ahead.”
