Stipend: Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities, Dumbarton Oaks (Washington DC, due 1 Feb. 2016)

Mellon Foundation Fellowship: Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities
Dumbarton Oaks, Washington DC
Due: 1 February 2016
As part of a new program in urban landscape studies funded by the Mellon Foundation, Dumbarton Oaks is offering fellowships for historians and designers pursuing advanced research in urban landscape topics, both historic and contemporary. The program is funded through the Foundation’s initiative in “Architecture, Urbanism, and the Humanities,” intended to foster the joint contributions that the humanities and the design and planning disciplines may make to the understanding of the processes and effects of burgeoning urbanization. Two fellowships will be offered each fall and spring, and are available to humanities scholars, landscape architects and urban designers. Field research funds are also available. The application deadline for the 2016-17 academic year is February 1, 2016. The Mellon Fellowships are intended to build constructive dialogue between them about the history and future of urban landscapes, encouraging them to bridge the gap between their professional modes of thinking. To foster this interchange, Dumbarton Oaks seeks candidates with a demonstrated capacity for cross-disciplinary work, and encourages collaborative applications from designers and historians working on similar topics or the same city. For additional information on the urban landscape initiative, see www.doaks.org/research/garden-landscape/mellon-initiative-in-urban-landscape-studies/overview. For fellowship terms and applications, see www.doaks.org/research/fellowships-and-grants/fellowships/mellon-fellowships-in-urban-landscape-studies. Any questions related to the Mellon Fellowship Program or to the suitability of proposed fellowship applications should be directed to Jeanne Haffner at Mellon@doaks.org. Preference will be given to candidates with final degrees such as PhD or MLA.
