The $12,000 Highlands Fellowship is awarded biennially to an alum of the Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture.
The fellowship is named in honor of Professor Delbert Highlands, who taught courses in architectural design, design theory and architectural history at Carnegie Mellon from the 1960s through the first decade of this century. Always urging students to understand and ground their work firmly in particular locales, Highlands is widely recognized as a seminal teacher whose skill and understanding have enriched the education of generations of Carnegie Mellon students.
Past Highlands Fellowship winners have considered the relationship between Gambian vernacular and Louisiana Creole architecture, and the configuration of Byzantine churches converted to Ottoman mosques. Download this year's application. Application deadline: November 23, 2015.
