AUGUSTA — The University of Maine at Augusta’s Office of University Advancement announced recently the establishment of the endowed Roger and Beverly Richmond Architecture Scholarship. Named for donors Roger and Beverly Richmond, the scholarship will provide need/achievement-based educational support for full-time UMA architecture students for foreign and domestic travel and related expenses. “Architecture is greatly about precedent, and many of our students cannot afford to have the essential travel experience to see architectural theories brought to ‘life’ in real buildings from different eras and different cultures. Visiting examples of world architecture will greatly benefit the students’ academic learning process and enrich their lives in the unique ways that only travel offers,” Roger Richmond, a founder of UMA’s architecture program, said in a news release. The university’s architecture program is housed in the Gannett building on Water Street in Augusta. In honor of Roger and Beverly Richmond’s gift, the gallery located inside the Gannett building will be named “The Richmond Gallery,” with a dedication event taking place this fall.
