SLS NextGen Scholarship

The AIA Academy of Architecture for Health (AAH) and the American College of Healthcare Architects (ACHA) will select up to two emerging professionals seeking licensure, or newly licensed, to be chosen as 2024 Summer Leadership Summit (SLS) Next Generation Scholars. The SLS is an annual gathering of health care design leaders from the U.S. and around the world. Attendees convene for two days of presentations and panel discussions that address the future of health care from speakers representing health disciplines including the government, health care organizations, finance, business, and design community perspectives.

Each selected recipient will receive complimentary registration for the summit, $1,500 towards travel/hotel and be recognized during the event. The 2024 SLS will be held in person on July 26-28, 2024, in Denver, Colorado. 

How are new technologies in our increasingly virtual world affecting our communities and how will our institutions harness these new technologies to impact health outcomes?  

Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) are impacting health care, the architecture profession, and the world around us in exciting and potentially concerning ways. As our world becomes more virtual and artificial, how do we stay grounded while still benefiting from the latest advancements in health care technology and innovation?

The Summer Leadership Summit (SLS), co-organized by the AIA Academy of Architecture for Health and the American College of Healthcare Architects, aims to answer this important question. Join us to explore recent AI advances in architecture and health care, examine the near-future of our evolving virtual world, and outline the opportunities and risks for our changing, computer-driven landscape.
