Enid W. and Bernard B. Spigel Architectural Scholarship Fund

Each year the Enid W. and Bernard B. Spigel Architectural Scholarship helps upper-level or graduate students from Virginia earn degrees in architecture, architectural history or architectural preservation.

Bernard Betzig Spigel (1895-1968) was a Richmond native who moved to Norfolk as a boy. He graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh and served in the Army Corps of Engineers during World War I. He then came home to set up an architecture practice. Spigel was known for designing theaters as well as homes, schools and businesses. In 1983, Spigel’s daughter, Lucy Spigel Herman, established a scholarship that honored her late father and stepmother. Each year the Enid W. and Bernard B. Spigel Architectural Scholarship helps upper-level or graduate students from Virginia earn degrees in architecture, architectural history or architectural preservation.

Among the past recipients is notable Virginia Beach architect Clay Dills who received the scholarship during his final year at Virginia Tech. "The scholarship was really meaningful to me and continues to be meaningful," he says.
