FELLOWSHIP: H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship. The Society of Architectural Historians.

The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2017 and 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 an advanced academic degree. Instead, Professor Brooks intended the recipient to study by travel and contemplation while observing, reading, writing, or sketching.
The goals are to provide an opportunity for a recent graduate with an advanced degree or an emerging scholar to:

  • see and experience architecture and landscapes firsthand
  • think about their profession deeply
  • acquire knowledge useful for the recipient’s future work, contribution to their profession, and contribution to society

The fellowship recipient may travel to any country or countries during the one-year period. This fellowship is funded completely by the Society of Architectural Historians’ H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship Fund.
More information about the award, the schedule, the criteria and requirements, and the application details can be found here.
Application deadline: 1 October 2017.
