WheelwrightPrize-GSD-logo

The Wheelwright Prize is a $100,000 travel-based research grant awarded annually by Harvard University GSD to early-career architects who have demonstrated exceptional design talent, produced work of scholarly and professional merit, and who show promise for continued creative work. With the prize, Harvard GSD hopes encourage new forms of architectural research informed by cross-cultural engagement. We seek individual applicants who are accomplished but emerging, who are resourceful and risk-taking, and who can make the most of this extraordinary opportunity to construct a research project that will have an impact on his or her own professional development, and potentially on the discipline of architecture as a whole.

Applicants must have received a degree from an accredited professional architecture program in the past 15 years (2001 or later). Holders of multiple degrees may apply, provided they received an architecture degree in the past 15 years. The Wheelwright Prize is an open international competition. Applicants will be asked to submit (1) a portfolio (no more than 10 images), (2) names of three references (names only, not letters), (3) a brief research proposal, and (4) travel itinerary.

The 2016 Wheelwright Prize is now accepting applications. The deadline for submissions is February 8, 2016. Please visit wheelwrightprize.org for more information and a link to start an application.
