ACE Graduate, Cameron Mack, Honored by NOMA

2020 ACE Graduate, Cameron Mack, Joins 2023 NOMA Summer Fellowship

Cameron Mack, who attends Howard University, has joined the Cooper Carry design firm for the 2023 summer fellowship cohort. 

Continuing to not only champion but provide pathways to academic and professional advancement, the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) celebrates another fellowship cohort of young designers. 

The NOMA Future Faces (NFF), formerly known as the NOMA Foundation Fellowship, recognizes 13 architecture students and graduates for this 2023 cohort as they engage in a two-month-long summer fellowship. 

These fellowships are “hosted at leading architecture firms across the country where fellows engage in design research and benefit from firm mentorship,” explains NOMA. “In an industry where only two percent of licensed architects in the United States identify as Black, the NFF plays a crucial role in providing valuable professional experience to underrepresented students.”

Since the organization’s inaugural cohort in 2020, the group has worked with 96 fellows and has helped place them at 88 firms for mentorship. What’s even more impressive is the number of colleges and universities represented throughout the fellowship’s existence. To date, there have been a total of 77 architecture schools represented from the U.S. and nearly 100 total fellowships offered.
