January 2024 Bulletin

Submit your application for the 2024 Robert N. Allsopp Urban Design Fellowship

The Robert N. Allsopp Urban Design Fellowship is intended to provide a practicing mid-career landscape architect, whose work and exploratory interests are in urban design, with funds for research or pursuing a specific area of inquiry over a five-to-six-month sabbatical.

The objective of the Fellowship is to provide an equal opportunity for research, gaining new perspectives, and “re-charging the battery” - something that is usually afforded to tenured university academics.

We are now accepting applications for the 2024 fellowship. Read more about the fellowship and how to apply below.

Deadline: May 2nd 2024, 4pm ET
