Funding to attend Vernacular Architecture Forum, Philadelphia, 2019: First Time Attendee

ACCESS AWARD: In an effort to bring fresh voices to the study of vernacular buildings and landscapes the Access Award supports first-time attendance by scholars and students with limited professional exposure to the fields of architectural history and vernacular studies, as well as by practitioners and independent scholars in the field. The next meeting, Landscapes of Succession, will take place in Philadelphia, PA, May 29 - June 1, 2019. 


There is no geographic restriction on the award and local practitioners, scholars, and students may apply. Winners are not required to give a paper at the meeting, although they may. The award will cover the cost of registration for the conference including tours. Winners who live more than 50 miles from the conference site will also receive a stipend of $300 for travel and lodging, to be presented at the conference. Up to two awards will be given per year. Winners are required to write an article to be published in the VAF’s newsletter, VAN, discussing what they learned as first-time attendees.


The deadline for applications is January 5, 2019.
