  • End date:

The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2016 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. In 2016 the Brooks Fellowship will be $50,000 and will cover expenses incurred by the Brooks Fellow for one year of travel.

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 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 built environment including an MArch, MUP, MLA or a master’s in a historic preservation program.

Priority will be given to those whose chosen profession is relevant to the interests and objectives of the Society of Architectural Historians, i.e., the history of the built environment, historic preservation, conservation, and social implications of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.
The fellowship is intended to be a special honor for the recipient and is to be awarded to a truly outstanding candidate, based on distinguished academic achievement, leadership potential, personal motivation, and promise. This is an international fellowship so candidates from any country may apply.

The deadline to apply is October 3, 2016.
