Description
The Deborah J. Norden Fund, established in 1995 in memory of architect and arts administrator Deborah Norden, awards up to $5,000 annually in travel and study grants to students and recent graduates in the fields of architecture, architectural history, and urban studies. The Deborah J. Norden Fund is administered by The Architectural League of New York.
Applicants must submit a maximum three-page proposal, which succinctly describes the objectives of the grant request and how it will contribute to the applicant’s intellectual and creative development. The grant amount requested (up to $5,000), a maximum two-page résumé, and a pro- jected schedule and budget for travel and other costs must also be included. An addendum of no more than four pages may be submitted in order to include images, maps, or other supporting material. Applicants must request two letters of rec- ommendation from individuals who are knowledgeable about the applicant’s ability and project. Applicants must reside in, but need not be citizens of, the U.S., Canada, or Mexico.
The application process is extremely competitive. The intention of the fund is to sup- port genuinely independent projects that require travel. Grant funds cannot be used for tuition, and grants will
not be awarded to support participation in an organized program, such as a university’s summer abroad program. While requests for support of dissertation research will
be considered, they are not a priority of the fund. Prefer- ence will be given to strong proposals from applicants who have not had this sort of opportunity before.
