Fellowship Deadline: May 9, 2007

Van Alen Institute invites applications for the New York Prize Fellowship, a 
new fellowship program in support of multidisciplinary research and 
experimental practice in public architecture. Early to mid-career 
practitioners and scholars from the design and planning disciplines, and 
other fields in the arts, humanities and sciences are invited to apply.

Fellows pursue advanced independent research and generate public projects on 
the most significant issues shaping the design and use of public space 
today. Projects can range across media, temporalities, dimensions and scales 
in the form of exhibitions, installations, performances, symposia and other 
formats. The Institute seeks critical and creative projects that provoke new 
ways of thinking about and making public space, and that engage public 
audiences in imaginative and productive ways.

Up to five fellowships for periods of three months each will be granted in 
2007-2008. The fellowship award includes a $5,000 stipend, project support 
in the range of $2,500 to $10,000, individual office/studio space at the 
Institute, and the opportunity to present and publish work for public 
audiences. Applications must be received by May 9, 2007. Information and 
Guidelines: www.vanalen.org/nyprize.
