Graduate students and young professionals are invited to apply for the 2019 John G. Thorpe Young Professionals and Students Fellowship. This program was established in 2016 to honor John Garrett Thorpe, prominent restoration architect and longtime Conservancy board member.

Young professionals in the first five years of their careers in architecture or historic preservation, and graduate students in architecture or historic preservation (full-time or part-time) currently enrolled at the time of application, are eligible to apply for a fellowship. Recipients will receive one regular general conference registration to attend the Conservancy’s 2019 conference in Los Angeles, Wright’s Influence in Postwar Southern California, Oct. 2-6. Two or more awards will be made in 2019. Download the conference preview here (pdf).

Download the application here. The deadline to apply for 2019 has been extended to July 18.

Tax-deductible donations to the Thorpe Fellowship may be made online (indicate Thorpe Fellowship in donation notes). Help us encourage the next generation of advocates in our mission to save Wright!
