Rose Fellowship Application
For all recent graduates, here is a great opportunity to be involved in an incredible program that, if awarded, trains young architects in the field of affordable housing and sustainable communities. The Rose Fellowship has five locations this year, and I just returned from Yakima and the Office of Rural and Farmworker Housing with the Director of the Fellowship, Katie Swenson, to look at the job site in that city (others are on website). The Fellowship places you in a location working as a designer for three years, as well as puts you in a cohort of 12 young architecture leaders across the country who are trained in the field of affordable housing and leadership in low income communities.
Applications are due July 8, so see website for more details and all five 2011 fellowship project locations.
“The mission of the Rose Fellowship is to inspire and nurture a new generation of architects as lifelong leaders dedicated to creating sustainable communities for people at all income levels.Since its inception in 2000, the Rose Fellowship has achieved dramatic results in neighborhoods across the country. The 35 Rose Fellows sponsored to date have used their design and organizational skills to help their host organizations create or preserve over 7,000 sustainable, affordable homes and 43 much-needed community facilities for low-income people in underserved communities.”
