Society of Architectural Historians: Edilia and François-Auguste de Montêquin Fellowships

  • Deadline: Sep 30, 2023
  • Online

These awards through the Society of Architectural Historians provide support for travel related to research on Spanish, Portuguese, or Ibero-American architecture for advanced graduate students as well as a senior or emerging scholar.

These annual fellowships are intended to support the research of graduate students who have completed their coursework and are engaged in doctoral dissertation research, and senior or emerging scholars who have completed their PhD or equivalent terminal degree. The research to be supported must focus on Spanish, Portuguese, or Ibero-American architecture, including colonial architecture produced by the Spaniards in the Philippines and what is today the United States. The applicant must be a current member of SAH.

The awards consist of a $2,000 fellowship for an advanced graduate student and a $6,000 fellowship for a senior or emerging scholar. The awardees will be notified in December and will be recognized onscreen at the SAH Annual International Conference in April and in the SAH Newsletter.

Following completion of travel and research supported by the fellowship, each de Montêquin Fellowship awardee must submit a written report summarizing their research and explaining what travel was undertaken and how funds were spent. The report will be submitted to the SAH office no later than three months following the completion of work related to the fellowship. Awardees are required to upload images to SAHARA (a minimum of 50 for junior scholars and a minimum of 150 for senior scholars).

Applications must be received by September 30 and require two letters of recommendation, a 500-word description of the project, a CV, and a 500-word statement of purpose.
