Submission date:




The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2022 and will allow a recent
graduate or emerging scholar to study by travel for a period of three,
six or twelve months. In response to the uncertainty of travel and to
broaden the accessibility to applicants who may not be able to take a
full year of travel, for whatever reason, the Society is amending the
proposal requirements for the 2022 awards to include partial-year
The fellowship is not for the purpose of doing research for
an advanced academic degree or publication. Instead, Professor Brooks
intended the recipient to study by travel and contemplation while
observing, reading, writing, photographing, or sketching.
The goal of the fellowship is 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 three-months-to-one-year period. This fellowship is funded by the
Society of Architectural Historians’ H. Allen Brooks Travelling
Fellowship Fund.The Award
