UT Architecture Student Establishes Fund to Support Her Classmates

This spring, UT School of Architecture senior Katherine Kligerman paid it forward in a big way.

After receiving the prestigious Angelo Donghia Senior Scholarship in Interior Design, Kligerman decided to donate half of her prize — $15,000 — to support her fellow architecture students. Through a HornRaiser crowdfunding campaign, she quickly raised the additional $10,000 needed to create an endowed fund that will help students purchase supplies like laptops, software and building materials for years to come.

“I want to help them focus on their dreams rather than stress about the amount it costs to get there,” she says.
