Fellowship: H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship

H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship
Deadline October 3, 2016


The Society of Architectural Historians is accepting applications for the 2016 H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship. The prestigious fellowship of $50,000 will allow a recent graduate or emerging scholar to study by travel for one year. The fellowship is not for the purpose of doing research for a book or an advanced degree. Instead, the goals are to provide an opportunity for the recipient to see and experience architecture and landscapes firsthand, to think about his/her profession deeply, and to acquire knowledge useful for his/her future work and contribution to society.

Criteria
The H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship is open to a scholar who will earn a PhD or advanced terminal degree in the first half of 2016 (by June 30, 2016) or an emerging scholar who was awarded a PhD or advanced terminal degree in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 or 2011 in a field related to the history of the built environment. Such degrees include PhDs in the history, theory or criticism of architecture, landscape architecture, or urbanism; historic preservation; the practice of architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning; or other fields of advanced study related to the history of the built environment including an MArch, MUP, MLA or a master’s in a historic preservation program. This is an international fellowship so candidates from any country may apply. All applicants must be current members of the Society of Architectural Historians. 

The deadline to apply is October 3, 2016. Visit
