Date: 11/9/2018 - 1/12/2019

Type: Grants

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): Pennsylvania

Description: The Vernacular Architecture Forum Ambassadors Awards provide funding for student groups (undergraduate and graduate) from North American institutions, with a faculty sponsor, to attend VAF's annual conference. The next meeting, Landscapes of Succession, will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, May 29 - June 1, 2019. The amount of money awarded to each program is at the discretion of the selection committee, but shall depend on such factors as the distance needed to travel to the annual conference site, the number of students involved, the number of award applicants, and the funds available to the Award program. The total Award amount per institution is limited to $2,500 with a maximum of $500 per student. We encourage, but do not require, that Ambassadors apply for matching funds from their institutions. Award recipients will be expected to act as "ambassadors" for the field and the organization in various ways, for example, social media presence. For application instructions, please go to DEADLINE FOR 2019: JANUARY 5, 2019
