The Wheelwright Prize awards a $100,000 travel-based research grant to a recent architect whose proposal conveys a talented, scholarly and professional design sense. Originally established by Harvard's GSD in 1935 as the "Arthur Wheelwright Traveling Fellowship", the prize is meant to extend travel-research opportunities to alumni. As of 2013, eligibility has expanded to any architect who has graduated within the last 15 years from a professionally accredited architecture degree program. The focus is on international research, requiring the winner of the Prize spend at least 6 months working out of their home country, and not in the United States.
More information about the Wheelwright Prize and applying are on Bustler. The online-application opens January 20, 2014, and will close March 4, 2014.
Last year's Wheelwright winner was Brooklyn-based architect Gia Wolff, for her proposal "Floating City: The Community-Based Architecture of Parade Floats".
