Mission

The Margaret B. Gruger (A’41) Faculty Fund has been established to support the needs of the School of Architecture and its faculty. To that end, the Head of the School is soliciting project proposals from the faculty that advance the mission and reputation of the School. Upon completion of the project, the recipients of funding will be required to make a public presentation of their work to the School community.


Impact  


Applicants must submit a proposal which clearly explains the project purpose, research objectives, methods, and materials. Selection is based upon the following criteria:

  • The impact of the proposal in relation to the candidate’s career development.
  • The impact of the proposal in relation to the mission of the School of Architecture.
  • The candidate’s proposed public presentation to the wider School of Architecture community.

The Head of the School of Architecture will review the proposals and make the selections. It is anticipated that there will be two awards made in the amount of $5,000 each. Upon completion of the project, the funding recipient will be required to make a public presentation of their work to the School community.
