Owners Scholarships

Take Advantage of DBIA’s Owner-Only Offers

DBIA offers Owners ways to maximize their access to the nation’s best design-build resources through Owners scholarships, education course discounts and membership savings

Owners can apply for hotel assistance or a travel stipend (all scholarships include complimentary registration).

Our goal is to help all of America’s Owners succeed using design-build. DBIA’s design-build conferences are among the most effective ways to network, learn first-hand from Owner peers and receive Design-Build Done Right® education all in one location. We want you there.

DBIA has awarded a quarter million dollars in Owner scholarships, and while we can’t guarantee all requests will be granted, the Owners Scholarship Fund was created to help defray the cost of attendance, hotel or travel for qualified Owners coming from throughout the nation.

  • Owners may apply to receive complimentary registration and one of the following: complimentary hotel accommodations for up to 3 nights or a travel stipend for air/ground transportation
  • The travel stipend will be based on DBIA’s determination of the reasonable transportation cost to the host conference city
  • Amounts awarded may vary based on the number of scholarships awarded
  • Non-members may apply
  • Applicants will be notified of the status of their request via email at least 45 days before the event

“This is one of the best conferences I have ever attended. Having an opportunity to network with others from all over the country and learn how they use design-build on their projects not only allows your organization to learn, it also gives you a creative spark on other ways you can utilize the design-build process.”
