Steven Mueller Architects LLC of Greenwich sponsored an architectural scholarship award which was presented to New Canaan High School senior Nicolo Scandiffio.

The "Steven Mueller Architects, LLC Award for the pursuit of the Architectural Profession" was presented by Steven Mueller, AIA at the annual New Canaan High School recognition assembly June 3.

Mueller was inspired to create this scholarship award after speaking at the New Canaan High School career night March 22.

"The crowd of enthusiastic seniors expressing passion and interest in architecture moved me to want to do something that would support and encourage a young man or woman to pursue a truly rewarding profession that requires both business and design skills" Mueller said.

"I was both impressed and honored to receive Steven's phone call expressing his personal interest in our students as a direct result of participating in our annual career night," assistant principal Ari Rothman said.

"His personal passion for architecture and his interest in making a contribution to a student in our community was most welcome. After a brief discussion we determined that a scholarship award to an aspiring young architect would be appropriate and impactful."
