Mission

The Isabel Sophia Liceaga Discretionary Fund has been established to support the highest priority needs of the School of Architecture and its constituents. To that end, the Head of the School solicits project proposals from the faculty that advance the mission and reputation of the School. A strong emphasis will be placed upon projects that critically engage students.


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 degree to which the project critically engages students.

  • 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 (2) awards made in the amount of Two Thousand Dollars ($2,000) each. Upon completion of the project, the funding recipient will be required to make a public presentation of their work to the School community.
