Hart Howerton Travel Fellowship Program!

The application is a downloadable PDF on our websitewww.harthowerton.com
Background:
In 2006, Hart Howerton began an educational initiative to fund a select number of Fellowship positions for students at design schools.  Each summer, Fellowships allow the firm to employ students in planning, architecture and/or landscape architecture internships in our New York or San Francisco offices. The Fellowship also provides funded travel for research on a topic the Fellow selects.

As a result of the Fellowships, schools have graduated students with the added advantages of professional office experiencecollaborative interdisciplinary design, and worldwide travel and research. The perspective gained from a carefully defined program within a global design practice has helped students effectively define the choices available after graduation, and more confidently approach their careers.
  
Travel Study Focus:   The firm currently has two research initiatives.  Students with similar interests are especially encouraged to apply.
·         Complete Environments – New and innovative thinking that spans the fields of planning, architecture, and landscape architecture.
·         Healthy Living – Comprehensive design for improved health outcomes in the places we create.


Structure:  Hart Howerton defines an 8-week professional internship “assignment” as part of an existing firm project, followed by the Fellow’s self-defined, approved topic of travel study.  The 3-week travel period’s findings are prepared, upon return, as a report presented by the Fellow to the firm.

The Fellowship includes:
·         $5,000 Fellowship travel expenses during the 3-week travel period.
·         $6,500 salary for the 8-week Fellowship/Internship within the office.
·         $2,500 for housing assistance during the 8-week stay in San Francisco or New York.
·         Round trip travel to SF or NY from the student’s school.

The application deadline is January 27, 2017. Hart Howerton will select a short list of up to 10 students to be interviewed by telephone or in person before final selection. The awarded Fellows will be announced on March 6, 2017
