Application deadline: January 9, 2023
The Loeb Fellowship at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design is now accepting applications for the Loeb Fellowship Class of 2024. The deadline for applications is Monday, January 9, 2023. Full application details are available on the Loeb Fellowship website.
Mid-career practitioners whose work advances beneficial social outcomes through the shaping of the built and natural environments are eligible for the Loeb Fellowship, a year-long residential fellowship. Over the course of the academic year, each Fellow is given a stipend, housing, and access to the learning resources of both Harvard and MIT. After graduating, Loeb Fellows become a part of a lifelong network of varied, active professionals made up of approximately 450 practitioners. Loeb Fellowship alumni include Robin Chase, Alejandro Echeverri, Theaster Gates, Anna Heringer, Rick Lowe, Damon Rich, Inga Saffron, Phil Freelon, Andrew Freear, Henry Hampton, Florencia Rodriguez, Eleni Myrivili, and Deanna Van Buren.
The Loeb Fellowship welcomes submissions from a wide spectrum of outstanding professionals with at least five to ten years of relevant experience, both in the US and abroad. Among other interests and occupations, past Fellows have included urban planners and designers, public artists, landscape architects, journalists, architects, activists, policy-makers, and community development leaders. The freshly introduced Loeb/ArtLab Fellowship also provides access to space and assistance from the ArtLab at Harvard University for working artists. The Loeb/ArtLab Fellowship may be applied for by one candidate from each Loeb cohort, with selection taking place as part of the Loeb Fellowship application process.
The Loeb Fellowship works to create a diverse cohort of professionals every year, embracing a range of fields, geographical locations, abilities, socioeconomic conditions, and educational backgrounds. Practitioners with experience working in a variety of community contexts are encouraged to apply, as are members of historically underrepresented groups and communities. There are no educational or degree prerequisites for the Fellowship. We accept professionals with unusual educational backgrounds or career routes. The new Connect with Alumni portal for the Fellowship now offers the chance to speak with Loeb Alumni directly to learn more about the Fellowship experience.
