When will the next call for proposals be issued?
The next call for proposals will be issued in 2018. Please check back for updates.

Can I enter with a partner or team?
No. Only individual applicants will be considered.

I have several degrees. How does the 8-year limit apply?
The 8-year limit applies only to your last architectural degree. If you have received a recognized degree in architecture within the last eight calendar years, (even if it is a second architecture degree) you are eligible to apply. Post professional degrees that are received from schools not offering professional architectural degrees do not extend the qualifying time limit of 8 years.

I have a BS or BA in architecture, but not a professional BArch. Am I eligible to apply?
Yes, all degrees in architecture from accredited schools of architecture in the US –or equivalent outside the US– are eligible degrees in architecture.

I’m currently a student. Can I apply before I graduate?
You may apply only if you will have received the degree before the start of the Fellowship travel

What is the Jury looking for in a proposal?
The jury looks for clarity of purpose, originality, adherence to theme, and feasibility of the proposal. Projects must demonstrate relevance to the practice of architecture in St. Louis, MO and around the world.

What are the guidelines for travel?
Fellows must spend between 6-12 months (cumulatively) outside the US and their country of residence (if applicable) pursuing their approved research project. Fellows must complete their research within 18 months of receiving the award. Fellows are solely responsible for any necessary government related travel visas or permissions they may be required to have.

Can I use the Fellowship money to study in a university?
No. Funds may only be used for expenses related to the fellow’s approved travel and research. Funds may not be used towards credit-earning degrees or programs, or support for academic study. Funds may not be used for dependents or others traveling with the Fellow.

What are the obligations of the Fellow?
Fellows are expected to maintain regular contact with the Committee throughout the course of their research to keep them apprised of their progress. Upon the project’s completion, the Fellow will be provided additional funds to travel to St. Louis to lead a workshop (or lecture, etc) based on their research with the students of the Sam Fox School and the professional community. The format of this presentation will be determined by the Committee. Fellows will also be asked to provide a 2 page summary of their fellowship experience and outcomes.

I’m having trouble submitting my application. Whom should I contact about this?
