The School of Architecture has made the difficult decision to suspend the Garofalo Fellowship program temporarily because of the coronavirus pandemic. We consider the experience of being at the school to be a fundamental aspect of the fellowship, and we will reopen the application process when we can make plans to welcome the fellow to Chicago safely.
Named in honor of award-winning architect and educator Doug Garofalo (1958–2011), the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is an annual nine-month teaching fellowship that provides an emerging designer the opportunity to teach studio and seminar courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs and conduct independent design research. During its second semester, the fellowship includes a public lecture at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in Fine Arts and an exhibition, which is typically held at the school.
Now in its seventh year, the Garofalo Fellowship has made an essential contribution to the school’s culture. For more on past fellows and their projects, please visit Fellows.
The Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of individual and corporate donations, as well as grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
