The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture announced that, because of gifts from the estate of esteemed architect Dick Clark III, it is creating an endowed faculty chair, providing scholarships and travel opportunities for students, and advancing key initiatives for the school in the areas of design education and experiential learning.

Clark, who died in August after a battle with leukemia at age 72, graduated with his bachelor’s degree in architecture in 1969. He, along with his firm Dick Clark + Associates, became highly regarded across the nation. UT noted when announcing the contributions that Clark had become a valued mentor.

“Dick had always been a committed volunteer and generous benefactor to the School of Architecture. His presence, his influence, and now his legacy touch so many aspects of our program, students, and community,” said Dean Michelle Addington.

“We are deeply honored to announce two new permanent endowments that Dick envisioned for the school. The first is a legacy scholarship, the Dick Clark III Endowed Scholarship in Architecture, which will provide generous funding that will significantly enhance our ability to recruit, retain, and support future leaders in the field of Architecture.

“Furthermore, great students need great faculty, and Dick wanted to build upon the school’s long history in the excellence of teaching to ensure that we could continue to hire the exceptionally talented designers who shape the education of future generations. In this light, he left a second, very generous gift and communicated his wishes to create the Dick Clark III Chair in Architecture.”
