The School of Architecture and Planning supports a rich culture of intellectual exchange through several endowed faculty fellowships in architecture and planning.

Made possible through the generous support of our donors, these fellowships support research and creative activities of emerging professionals, foster dialogue on current issues through public lectures and seminars, and underwrite publications.
