Journal of Architectural Education Fellows

Call for JAE Fellows

The Journal of Architectural Education (JAE) and Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA) recognise the critical need to support the scholarship of architectural educators and researchers who face and continue to encounter systemic and structural obstacles, including racism, within academia and beyond. As a step toward this commitment, they have established one-year Fellowships and online publication commitments for cohorts of two to four architectural educators, designers, and researchers per year who self-identify as Black, Native/Indigenous, and/or as members of groups that are and have been historically and systemically marginalized and excluded, and whose academic labor is precarious, including adjunct, lecturer, and other non-tenure track faculty. Proposals may be made by individuals or as part of a collective and will be selected for advancement by the JAE Fellows Advocates. A key component of the JAE Fellows program is to help shift conversations and systems around conventional forms of review and assessment, and to productively unsettle exclusive systems and platforms of scholarship, design, research, and creative practice.

Each fellowship includes a one-time award of $5,000 (USD) and an individually tailored commitment of mentorship and advocacy from the JAE Fellows Advocates. Applications are open to architectural educators located anywhere in the world. The application deadline is December 20, 2021. More submission details can be found here.
