Sponsored by the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) for a 12-Week HABS Summer Research Project
The Sally Kress Tompkins Fellowship, a joint program of the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) and the National Park Service's Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), permits an graduate student in architectural history (or a related field) to work on a 12-week HABS project during the summer of 2015. The Fellow will prepare a written history to become part of the permanent HABS collection focusing on either a specific building/site, or a broader architectural history topic that will inform future HABS documentation. The Fellow will be stationed in the field working in conjunction with a HABS measured drawings team, or in the HABS Washington, D.C. office. The Fellow will be selected by a jury of two SAH members and one HABS representative.
The 2015 Sally Kress Tompkins/HABS award includes a $10,000 stipend. The winner will be announced during the Society's 68th Annual Meeting held in April in Chicago, Illinois, and afterward in the Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians and the Newsletter of the Society.
