SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As Fireclay Tile enters its 3rd year of partnering with The Architects Foundation on scholarships dedicated to Black women pursuing architecture, they are thrilled to introduce the incredibly talented visual artist and future architect Oni Thornell as the inaugural recipient of their "Fireclay Diversity Advancement Scholarship".

Thornell’s thoughtful approach to environmental and community impact demonstrates a keen understanding of the forward-thinking change that Fireclay greatly respects. With inspiring change-makers like Oni, it’s easy to see how a brighter, more inclusive future for all is possible. Thornell, of Brooklyn, NY, will receive $4,000 per year towards tuition for up to five years to attend Syracuse University.

Embracing diverse viewpoints and cultures in architecture is an asset to the profession, and the Diversity Advancement Scholarship offers students with a passion for studying the discipline of architecture an opportunity to successfully complete their studies no matter their color or where they come from. With the help of generous donations from brand partners, friends, and clients, Fireclay has raised $120k+ to date.
