Prizes: Please see details below
Harvard GSD’s Wheelwright Prize is an international competition for early-career architects. Winners receive a $100,000 (USD) fellowship to foster intensive, innovative architectural research that is informed by cross-cultural engagement and can make a significant impact on architectural discourse. We seek individual applicants who are accomplished but emerging, who are resourceful and risk-taking, and who can make the most of this extraordinary opportunity to advance a research project that will have a significant impact on his or her own professional development, and potentially on the discipline of architecture as a whole.
Applicant must have graduated from a professionally accredited architecture degree program in the past 15 years. (For the 2022 cycle: Graduates prior to January 2007 are ineligible.) Holders of multiple degrees may apply, provided they received their professional degrees between January 2007 and January 2022. Applicants need not be registered or licensed.
Applicants may not have received the Arthur Wheelwright Traveling Fellowship previously.
Winners of the Wheelwright Prize may not hold other fellowships concurrently.
The Wheelwright Prize is available to individual entrants only; teams or firms will not be considered.
Current Harvard GSD faculty, instructors, and staff are not eligible.
For winners based in the United States, some amount of research must be undertaken outside the country.
The Wheelwright Prize is intended for independent study and may not be applied to university tuition. However, the grant may be applied to fees for workshops and conferences.
