JAE Fellows

Deadline: December 20, 2021 12:00 am

Source: JAE/ACSA

Description: The JAE and ACSA recognize the critical need to support the scholarship of architectural educators and researchers who face and continue to encounter systemic and structural obstacles, including racism, within academia and beyond. As a step toward this commitment, they have established one-year Fellowships and online publication commitments for cohorts of two to four architectural educators, designers, and researchers per year who self-identify as Black, Native/Indigenous, and/or as members of groups that are and have been historically and systemically marginalized and excluded, and whose academic labor is precarious, including adjunct, lecturer, and other non-tenure track faculty. Proposals may be made by individuals or as part of a collective and will be selected for advancement by the JAE Fellows Advocates, an international network of renowned architectural educators. See website for more info.

Award: Each fellowship includes a one-time award of $5,000 and an individually tailored commitment of mentorship and advocacy from the JAE Fellows Advocates. Awardees and Advocates will commit to established meetings throughout the duration of Fellowship. JAE Fellows’ work will be published at the end of the Fellowship period on JAE’s website and additional programming is planned—as desired by each Fellow—to highlight their work, including webinars, interviews, online conversations, and other events to engage a broader public and to open an expansive discourse on the future of disciplinary scholarship and publication.

Eligibility: Applications open to architectural educators anywhere in the world.

Architectures of Order – Fellowship

Source: Goethe University Frankfurt

Description: “Architectures of Order” is an interdisciplinary research project of the Goethe University Frankfurt and Technical University of Darmstadt, with the Max-Polanck-Institute for European Legal History and the Deutsches Architekturmuseum as associated partners. The project investigates architecture as a cultural practice of ordering that manifests aesthetically, materially, spatially, discursively, as well as epistemologically. The fellowship program aims to expand the thematic scope and expertise of the resident research cluster as well as its national and international networks. The work of the fellow should demonstrate the connections with the goals of the project as well as its annual research theme. The theme for 2022, “Designing Order,” is dedicated to the architectural design process in its contemporary relevance and historical versatility, focusing on both the concepts of order that structure it and the new notions of order it produces. Please see website for more info.

Award: 1-3 month research residency; monthly stipend of 3,200 Euro (to cover room & board, etc.); and roundtrip fare to Frankfurt am Main, GER. 

Eligibility: Applications are welcome from applicants of diverse disciplinary backgrounds including but not limited to the areas of expertise of the project’s resident members:  architectural history & theory, art history, cultural & media studies, history, sociology, and design theory. Applications are accepted from scholars of all career levels with particular interest in early career researchers. A chronological focus on the early modern period (1500-1800) is particularly welcome. Applicants required to hold Ph.D.

Description Loeb Fellows are accomplished practitioners, influential in shaping the built and natural environment, whose work is advancing positive social outcomes in the US and around the world. In the middle of promising careers they step away from their hectic professional lives for one academic year. Fellows audit classes at the GSD and throughout the vast network of Harvard and MIT. They engage with faculty and students, participate in Fellowship events, and collaborate with their peers. They become part of a powerful growing network of colleagues passionately committed to revitalizing communities. The Loeb/ArtLab Fellowship is open to any artist or person with an artistic practice who applies for a Loeb Fellowship and meets the requirements thereof. The intention of a joint Loeb / ArtLab Fellowship is to give practicing artists the same Fellowship experience they would have as Loeb Fellows, with the added benefit of being granted studio space in the ArtLab building, research support and networking resources through the ArtLab community, as well as potential funding for proposed programs and/or projects over the course of the year.

Award: Academic-year fellowship; stipend; housing in Cambridge; and tuition-free auditing of classes at Harvard & MIT.

Eligibility: Mid-career professionals with 5-10 years of experience (minimum). The Fellowship is for practitioners. It is not a sabbatical program or an artist residency.
