The Graham Foundation Announces the Carter Manny Award for Doctoral Work

2010 postmark deadline is 15 March

It is the intention of the Carter Manny Award to support work on academic dissertations by promising scholars who are presently candidates for a doctoral degree, and whose dissertations focus on areas traditionally supported by the Graham Foundation; that is, areas directly concerned with architecture and with other arts that are immediately contributive to architecture. Scholars whose dissertations are directed towards architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, architectural technologies, architectural research, architectural history and theory, urban design and planning, and the fine arts in relation to architectural topics are eligible for support through a Carter Manny Award.

PhD candidates at the writing or research phase of the dissertation are eligible to apply. Award funds may be used for write-up support or for research-related expenses, such as travel, documentation, materials, supplies, and other development costs.

The Carter Manny Award is restricted to applicants who have completed their coursework; whose dissertation proposals have been formally approved by their academic departments; and who have been advanced to candidacy. Only students officially enrolled in schools in the U.S. and Canada are eligible to apply for the Award. Academic departments may nominate one student for the award competition each year, and a student may not apply more than once for the Award.

The award will be acknowledged by financial support of up to $15,000.

The 2010 postmark deadline is March 15.
