Education is at the heart of our foundation.

By assisting individuals at all levels of scholarship, we aim to facilitate a wide variety of research and education.

Our grants allow individuals to travel the world in search of understanding the rich history and culture of architecture, building science and technology, historic preservation, landscape architecture, and urban design.

They provide tenured professors the ability to hire students as research assistants and support the publication of journals and books dedicated to design.

 

For more than a decade, we have partnered with the schools of architecture at The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University, and Louisiana State University. We are dedicated to advancing multi-disciplinary scholarship about the built environment.

The future of our professions and communities are dependent on advancing research dedicated to the built environment. Our grant and fellowship recipients dedicate more time to their education and scholarship, dive into architectural archives, pursue internships abroad, and enhance educational programming at home.
