FELLOWSHIP: Edilia And François-Auguste De Montêquin Fellowship

FELLOWSHIP: Edilia And François-Auguste De Montêquin Fellowship.

This award provides support for travel related to research on Spanish, Portuguese, or Ibero-American architecture.
The awards consist of a $2,000 stipend for a junior scholar and a $6,000 award for a senior scholar. The awards will be presented at the Society’s Annual International Conference and will be announced in the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians and the SAH Newsletter after the presentation.
This fellowship is intended to support the research of junior scholars (usually scholars engaged in doctoral dissertation research) annually, and senior scholars (scholars who have completed their Ph.D. or equivalent terminal degree) every other year in even-numbered years – 2018, 2020, 2022, etc. The research to be supported must focus on Spanish, Portuguese, or Ibero-American architecture, including colonial architecture produced by the Spaniards in the Philippines and what is today the United States. You must be a current member of SAH.
Following completion of travel and research supported by the fellowship, each de Montêquin Fellowship awardee must submit a written report summarizing their research and explaining what travel was undertaken and how funds were spent. The report will be submitted to the SAH office no later than three months following the completion of work related to the fellowship. Awardees are required to upload images to SAHARA, a minimum of 50 (junior scholars) and a minimum of 150 (senior scholars).
You will need two recommendations to apply for this fellowship, a description of your research project on Iberian or Ibero-American architecture to be funded (500 words maximum), a current curriculum vitae (5 pages max), and a statement of purpose.
Applications for the 2018 award will open at 3 pm CDT on 1 August 2017, and close on 1 October 2017.
