Fellowship origin: The Harry der Boghosian Fellowship was
established by a transformational gift made by Paula de Boghosian
'64 EDU, to honor her brother, Harry der Boghosian, a 1954 graduate
of the School of Architecture. The gift is the largest ever made by
a living donor to the School of Architecture. The fellowship
provides faculty, early in their careers, with a unique opportunity
to spend a year developing a body of design research while teaching
at the School of Architecture.

Syracuse University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action
