The Sally Kress Tompkins Fellowship, a joint program of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH), permits an architectural historian to work on a 12-week HABS project during the summer of 2013. The Fellow will prepare a written history to become part of the permanent HABS collection focusing on either a specific nationally-significant building/site, or a broader architectural history topic that will inform future HABS documentation. Recipients are also required to upload a minimum of 50 images to SAH’s SAHARA image database. The Fellow will be stationed in the field working in conjunction with a HABS measured drawings team, or in the HABS office in Washington, DC.
A jury of two SAH members and one HABS representative will select the Fellow. The award consists of a $10,000 stipend. Applications must be postmarked by December 14, 2012. Applicants should be pursuing graduate studies in architectural history or other related fields. Please submit your application to James A. Jacobs at the contact address.
NOTE: Fellowship applicants who want to be considered for summer historian positions with HABS/HAER/HALS will need to submit a separate application. For instructions, visit: http://www.nps.gov/history/hdp/jobs/summer.htm
