The RAMSA Fellowship is a $10,000 prize awarded annually by Robert A.M. Stern Architects for travel and research. The fellowship seeks to promote investigations into the perpetuation of tradition through invention—key to the firm’s own work—and is given to an individual who has proven insight and interest in the profession and its future, as well as the ability to carry forth in-depth research.
The fellows complete their travel in the summer and present their research to RAMSA’s office in New York City the following spring. This year the jury recognizes that summer travel may be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions; if safe travel to the proposed location is not feasible in 2022, RAMSA will work with the fellow to determine an alternate timeline and/or proposal. Download the 2022 fellowship application package below and submit your application before March 30th! The fellowship is administered by RAMSA Research.
