The Society of Architectural Historians’ prestigious H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship will be offered for 2017 and will allow a recent graduate or emerging scholar to study by travel for one year.

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. This record will be used by the SAH office to approve payment distribution.
The H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship is open to a scholar who:
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.
The Brooks Fellowship 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.
