The Kohn Pedersen Fox Traveling Fellowship 2013

Each year, Kohn Pedersen Fox presents three $10,000 awards to students who are in their penultimate year at one of the twenty-six design schools with whom KPF has chosen to partner. The goal of the award is to allow students to broaden their education through a summer of travel before their final year at school.


1. Students from twenty-six schools of architecture are eligible: American University of Beirut, Architectural Association, City College of New York, Columbia University, The Cooper Union, Cornell University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, North Carolina State University, Oklahoma State University, Pennsylvania State University, Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Pratt Institute, Princeton University, Rice University, Syracuse University, Tongji University, University of Cambridge, University of Cincinnati, University of Michigan, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Yale.

2. Any student in the penultimate year at one of those schools is eligible. Students may be in either a

Bachelor of Architecture or Master of Architecture degree programs. The application is made by the

student, but must be approved by the dean of the school. Each dean may nominate two students from the class.

Submission Requirements

1. A portfolio of fifteen one-sided pages at 11” x 17” or smaller, in a binding.

2. All work should be executed by the student alone. No work executed in an office—unless it has been designed and drawn solely by the student—should be included.

3. The first page will be a one sided 8 ½” x 11”sheet with the applicant’s name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, school attending and signature of the dean. This page should contain a statement of the student’s travel itinerary and the rationale for these travel plans. It should be easily detachable and should be the only page with any personal or identifiable information about the applicant.

The portfolio should be hand delivered or sent to Susan Green, Kohn Pedersen Fox, 11 West 42nd Street,6 th Floor, New York, N.Y., 10036, 212-977-6500.
The submission deadline is 5:00 p.m. Monday, April 23rd, 2013.


1. The jury will consist of two principals of KPF and three outside critics. The judging will take place at KPF during the month of April. The jury will consider the work after the first detachable page has been removed to assure anonymity.

2. All students submitting a portfolio will be informed of the results of the jury’s decision as soon as


3. All portfolios except the winning portfolios will be returned to the dean’s office of the candidate’s school by first class mail. The winning portfolios will be retained by KPF.


1. The fellows are encouraged to complete their travel during the summer of the year of the award. They are required to complete the trip within one year of the announcement of the award.

2. A check for $8,000 will be sent to the fellows two weeks after the awarding of the scholarship.

3. Fellows are required to submit to KPF, within 2 months of completion of their travel, a report including the student’s reason for travel, the places visited, and the lessons learned. Visual material, either photographs or drawings or both, should be included. The format and size of the report is entirely at the student’s discretion.
