Docomomo US Study Grants

Docomomo US is pleased to announce the development of a Study Grant program to provide financial support for qualified individuals whose work or educational focus demonstrates a continued interest and commitment in the area or subject of exploration for which the particular study grants are being offered. The Study Grant program has been made possible with the generous support of an anonymous Docomomo US supporter. 

Applicants interested in applying for the 2017 Study Grant program must demonstrate interest and commitment related to subjects of exploration during the Modern Mexico City travel tour taking place October 14-22, 2017. Questions about the program can be sent to info@docomomo-us.org.

Purpose
The Docomomo US Study Grants provide financial support for qualified individuals whose work or educational focus demonstrates a continued interest and commitment in the area or subject of exploration for which the particular study grants are being offered.

Grants
The intention of the study grants is to enable two (2) individuals to participate in one of Docomomo US’ foreign study tours. The grant will provide room, board (where covered by the tour program) and travel in the subject country as provided in the tour package. In addition, a small travel stipend of no more than $500 to cover travel from the grant recipient’s residence to the foreign destination will be provided. Expenses will be reimbursed upon submittal of appropriate documentation. Two study grants provide the single occupancy price of the travel tour package. Expenses beyond the travel stipend including meals not included in the package or expenses without documentation are not covered by the study grant and will not be reimbursed.

Eligibility
Study Grants are open to current full-time graduate and doctoral students enrolled in established institutions of higher learning, emerging professionals, artists or advocates actively engaged in issues concerning the subject and destination of the study tour. Applicants are asked to demonstrate their committed interest in the subject and how the study grant will meaningfully advance their goals, scholarship or work. Grants are provided on a need basis and applicants are required to submit a statement as to why they could not financially support this travel independently. Applicants must be at least 21 years of age and be a US citizen with a valid US passport.

Reporting Requirements
Study Grant Fellows are asked to give a presentation (30 minutes) during the travel tour to discuss their interest, connection and knowledge of the subject. Presentations are meant to be informal and informative rather than academic. Illustrative materials should be limited and no PowerPoint or slides are to be expected. Within two weeks of the conclusion of the tour, study grant recipients are required to submit an article (500-2000 words) on the impact of the travel tour with accompanying photographs. The article will be published in the Docomomo US newsletter.

Application Details
To apply, applicants will need to provide:
  • A statement (in English, 300 words) that explains how this fellowship will meaningfully advance your goals, scholarship or work 
  • A curriculum vitae (5 pages max)
  • One letter of recommendation
  • Proof of educational enrollment (where applicable) 
  • Statement of financial need
Deadlines
Applications for the 2017 study grants will open at 12 pm EDT on April 13, 2017 and close on June 1, 2017 at 5 pm EDT. Submissions can be sent to info@docomomo-us.org under the title “STUDY GRANT”. Study grant recipients will be notified in late June 2017 just before the formal announcement.
