Studiare e viaggiare per un anno: l'occasione arriva dalla prestigiosa borsa H. Allen Brooks

candidature entro il 3 ottobre 2016

Viaggiare per un anno, appuntando l'esperienza tramite scritti, schizzi o altri mezzi grazie ad un contributo di 50mila dollari. L'occasione proviene dalla prestigiosa borsa di studio internazionale H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship, messa a disposizione dalla statunitense Society of Architectural Historians ed indirizzata a studenti e giovani laureati.

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. This fellowship is funded completely by the Society of Architectural Historians' H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship Fund.

The Brooks Fellowship recipient will be expected to keep an online journal by posting at least once per month to the SAH Blog. The blog posts will document the fellow's travels in text and images, including photographs, video, drawings, or other media.

Award

In 2016 the Brooks Fellowship will be $50,000 and will cover expenses incurred by the Brooks Fellow for one year of travel. The award is non-renewable and award amounts may vary in future years. SAH suggests that if additional financial support is needed to cover other related expenses, that the applicants contact their respective university/college, academic adviser, department head, employer or outside foundations to investigate the financial opportunities afforded them. The Award will be paid in quarterly installments.

Eligibility

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.
