The Hartshorne and Plunkard Fellowship seeks to increase the number of architecture degrees awarded to students from traditionally underrepresented populations, and in turn, diversify the talent pipeline into the architectural profession.
The endowed fellowship is awarded annually to one new UIC Master of Architecture student. Each fellow receives significant tuition support for up to three years of graduate study, a paid internship at Hartshorne Plunkard Architecture (HPA), and additional academic and professional mentoring with HPA.

Fellowship Selection

The selected fellow will (1) contribute to the diversity of the student body in the School of Architecture and (2) show academic merit. Preference will be given to students who earned their Bachelor of Science degree from the UIC School of Architecture.

How to Apply

Applicants must submit the following by January 15, 2024:
-       A complete graduate application

Terms of the Award

The fellowship provides tuition support through a combination of School of Architecture teaching assistantship positions and tuition waivers. The terms of the HPA internship are determined together between the fellow and HPA with guidance from the School of Architecture Graduate Advisor. Fellows must maintain full-time status and remain in good academic standing through the duration of their studies.
