AIA Iowa Establishes Scholarship to Recognize Influential Member, William Dikis, FAIA

The American Institute of Architects, Iowa Chapter (AIA Iowa) has established the William M. Dikis, FAIA Architecture Service Scholarship in honor of one its most influential members. The scholarship was presented to Dikis by AIA Iowa’s 2013 Board of Directions on December 5, 2013 and it will benefit selected students in the Department of Architecture in the College of Design at Iowa State University.


Dikis graduated from Iowa State University with his Bachelor of Architecture in 1964 and his Masters of Architecture in 1967. He has been an AIA Iowa member since the 1960’s and is a recipient of the AIA Iowa Medal of Honor, the highest of AIA Iowa awards. Dikis is also a member of the AIA College of Fellows. His current involvement and participation in state government affairs is instrumental to the architectural profession and his peers. He has dedicated much of his life to serving the public and profession through his career in architecture. The scholarship, named after him, will recognize students that exemplify Dikis’ spirit of professional service and excellence in architecture.

Since 1857, the American Institute of Architects has represented the professional interests of America's architects. AIA Iowa, headquartered in Des Moines, is a statewide affiliate of the national AIA. AIA Iowa members express their commitment to excellence in design and are proactive in the design of livable communities. Members adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct that assures the client, the public, and colleagues of an AIA member architect's dedication to the highest standards in professional practice.
