The Graham Foundation is currently seeking applications for its 2019 Carter Manny Award to support dissertation research and writing by promising scholars whose projects have architecture as their primary concern and have the potential to shape contemporary discourse about architecture and impact the field.
Projects may be drawn from the various fields of inquiry supported by the Graham Foundation: architectural history, theory, and criticism; design; engineering; landscape architecture; urban planning; urban studies; the visual arts; and other related fields. The award assists students enrolled in graduate programs in architecture, art history, the fine arts, humanities, and the social sciences working on architecture topics.
- Research award
- The research award assists students with research that is essential to the doctoral project. The research award can be used for travel, documentation, materials, supplies, and other research and development costs. Applicants for a research award should have a clearly defined work plan, travel plan, and goals.
- The research award is acknowledged with up to $15,000.
- Writing award
- The writing award encourages timely completion of the PhD by assisting students who are in the advanced stages of the dissertation with one year of writing. While some of the award funds may be used for final research, the award is intended to support and facilitate uninterrupted writing. Applicants for a writing award will be asked to submit a writing sample from the dissertation, a dissertation table of contents, and a writing schedule.
- The writing award is acknowledged with up to $20,000.
- Citations of Special Recognition
- A limited number of Citations of Special Recognition may be determined in some years in recognition of outstanding projects.
- PhD students who are presently candidates for a doctoral degree are eligible to apply.
- Students must be nominated by their department to apply for the Carter Manny Award.
- A department may nominate up to two candidates: one for the research award and one for the writing award.
- At the time of application, students must have completed all requirements for the PhD except the dissertation and have had their dissertation proposals formally approved by their academic departments.
- A student may reapply for the Carter Manny Award if a previous application was not successful. Due to limited funds, a student who received a research award or a writing award is not eligible to apply for another Carter Manny Award in subsequent years.
- The award is open to students officially enrolled in schools in the United States and Canada, regardless of citizenship.
- Work being undertaken in pursuit of an academic degree is not otherwise eligible for Graham Foundation support.
