Each fellowship includes a one-time award of $5,000 and an individually tailored commitment of mentorship and advocacy from the JAE Fellows Advocates. Awardees and Advocates will commit to established meetings throughout the duration of Fellowship. JAE Fellows’ work will be published at the end of the Fellowship period on JAE’s website and additional programming is planned—as desired by each Fellow—to highlight their work, including webinars, interviews, online conversations, and other events to engage a broader public and to open an expansive discourse on the future of disciplinary scholarship and publication. A commitment of this project is to provide a platform for Fellows and their work.
Applications are open to architectural educators located anywhere in the world. This Fellowship encourages and is designed to strengthen modes of architectural research that take risks and are not yet well-supported, including work that challenges structural and systemic injustices, that advances new conversations about architectural education/pedagogy, practice, and/or theory, and that engages nontraditional methodologies and presentation methods (including primarily visual work, collectively authored work, documentary work, and other writing genres). Proposed projects created during this Fellowship may be part of a larger, ongoing research project. Fellows may also propose to expand the possibilities of online publishing and the digital platform of the jaeonline.org, including time-based, video, and sound-based work.
To apply for JAE Fellows, please share a Project Narrative that frames your research inquiry, method(s), and desired outcomes in relation to your academic goals and desire for peer support (500 words), along with a maximum 2-page C.V., 200-word bio, and 1 – 5 work samples (in .pdf, .mov, .avi, etc.) that support the project proposal. The JAE Fellows program welcomes project descriptions, personal narratives and non-conventional work samples that might operate as desires, commentary, counters, ripostes, critiques, elegies, poems, playlists, videos, and more.
Applications are open via this online portal as of October 25, 2021. Application deadline is December 20, 2021.
