Weinberg Fellowship
in architectural history and preservation

The Academy is pleased to announce the establishment of the Weinberg Fellowships in architectural history and preservation.
The selection of Weinberg Fellows will be based on the quality of the applications. These will be reviewed by a jury appointed by the Director and the Advisory Board of the Academy, which is composed of dozens of senior scholars in many fields at Columbia and other leading universities.
Normally Fellowships will be open to advanced scholars from the post doctoral to the full professorial level. (Candidates should expect to have their doctorates in hand no later than the summer after they apply.) Fellows will be expected to be in residence for one or two academic semesters.

At the Academy, Fellows will find a place where they can work, interact amongst themselves and with members of the Columbia community, and generally remain free from outside obligations. For periods of either one or two academic semesters, the Academy will provide office space and support, with opportunities for the organization of public lectures, seminars, conferences, and publication.

Fellows will be expected to be in residence for the duration of their stay at the Academy, although connections with other institutions of higher learning will be encouraged. Absences for more than three days at a time should be requested from the Director.
Former Fellows may re-apply no earlier than four years after the completion of their residencies. Fellows may not hold concurrent fellowships and are expected to dedicate their time to research while in residence. Any resulting publications should acknowledge the support of the Academy, as should any biographical notes published in connection with the Fellow's appearances while in residence.

Given the large number of eminently qualified candidates for the Italian Academy Fellowships every year, candidates selected in any one year will not be allowed to postpone their offer of a Fellowship to another year. If the Fellowship is not taken up in the term of the year in which it is offered it will be forfeited – although candidates who turned down an offer of a Fellowship in one year may, of course, apply for the Fellowship in another year. No guarantee of success, however, can be offered in such cases. Again, former Fellows may re-apply no earlier than four years after the completion of their residency. Candidates are encouraged to read the Fellowship Program page of this site.

Call for Applications for 2018–2019
