The Landmark Columbus Foundation has announced plans for a new scholarship in the 2022-2023 cycle of Exhibit Columbus. Through the University Design Research Fellowship competition, the foundation says more than $70,000 will be awarded to full-time university and college professors from all fields of design, architecture, art, and of landscape architecture to participate in the Columbus exhibition.
Landmark Columbus Foundation, which is the parent organization of Exhibit Columbus, kicked off the fourth cycle of Exhibit Columbus last month with a launch event in downtown Columbus. The three-month exhibition features exhibits of architecture, art and design.
According to the foundation, professors whose work involves “community-based urban design projects and the current challenges of downtown activation” can apply for up to $10,000.
“The University Design Research Fellowship component of Exhibit Columbus is unlike anything else in the United States,” said Richard McCoy, executive director of the Landmark Columbus Foundation. “Over the past six years, we have seen how more than twenty professors have been able to leverage their research on UDRFellowship as a way to advance and explore within the unique context of our community. We are very excited to see who is interested in participating this year and developing this component as a unique and highly visible platform that showcases design research and education.
The foundation says winners will be notified in September. You can log in for more information and apply by clicking here.
