In 2020, the USC School of Architecture and the Getty Research Institute (GRI) acquired the Paul R. Williams Architecture Archive from the Estate of Paul R. Williams. The Archive includes over 37,000 plans, including 10,000 drawings, blueprints, project diazo types, hand-colored renderings, vintage photographs, written correspondence, and other materials comprising Williams’ entire professional career.

 USC School of Architecture is pleased to announce a new fellowship opportunity that has been established for the Paul R. Williams Archive. The PRW Archive Fellows Program will support one designer- or scholar-in-residence per academic year.

 USC Architecture invites applications from recent graduates who wish to pursue careers in academia, and have a demonstrated interest and are developing work related to social, racial and cultural conditions within American cities.

 During each year-long program, the Fellow is expected to engage in research using the co-owned PRW Archive and teach or co-teach one course related to the social dimension of architecture and the work of PRW. The teaching component is meant, above all, to contribute to the junior scholar’s professional development and to help them prepare for successful careers as faculty.

 At the end of each fellowship year, participants are required to submit a written report, scholarly paper or exhibition on their activities and reflect on the potential impact of working with PRW Archive on their practice or scholarship.

Applications due May 1, 2024.
