SAH IDEAS Research Fellowships

The Society of Architectural Historians is pleased to announce a new fellowship and mentoring opportunity for emerging scholars anywhere in the world who self-identify as members of groups historically marginalized by SAH and the academy at large.
The SAH IDEAS Research Fellowships have been established to support a cohort of five emerging scholars per year, self-identifying as members of groups historically marginalized by SAH and the academy at large. These fellowships are intended to nurture research that challenges existing paradigms, as defined by applicants, and represents previously underrecognized and/or unsupported directions for architectural history as researched, thought, or applied. In addition to providing research support, the fellowships are intended to create mentored cohorts to support the work of emerging scholars.

Each fellowship includes a one-time award of $1,000 and a commitment of close mentorship from a senior colleague from the SAH community to be paired with the fellow for the duration of one year. The fellowship also involves guided lateral interaction across the cohort to encourage peer support. Awardees and mentors will commit to regular meetings throughout the year. SAH offers one year of digital membership to awardees.

The full call for applications is available here. The application deadline is 31 August 2021.
