The Isabel Sophia Liceaga Discretionary Fund was established to support faculty-led projects that critically engage students and advance the mission and reputation of the School of Architecture.
The School of Architecture will announce the call for applications for the next award cycle in the spring of 2018.
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.
Applicants must submit a proposal which clearly explains the project and objectives. 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 Head of the School of Architecture will review the proposals and make the selections. The award amount will total $2,000. Upon completion of the project, the recipients of funding will be required to make a public presentation of their work to the School community.
Eligibility & Schedule
The Isabel Sophia Liceaga Discretionary Fund is open to all current faculty of the School of Architecture.
