Application Details

Pitt’s summer architecture studio requires enthusiasm, curiosity, and dedication. Applicants should have a strong interest in pursuing architecture or design beyond high school. Applicants must submit a complete online application including an essay stating what they hope to gain from participation and at least one letter of recommendation. Students in grades 9-12 from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

The deadline for round one applications for summer 2022 was April 15, 2022. However, you are welcome to complete the application here to be added to the waitlist. All student applicants will be informed of the status of their acceptance into the summer studio by late April, and waitlist applicants will be accepted on a rolling basis as spots become available.
