We are happy to announce details of the Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) Fellowship for 2014-2015.
The SCI Fellowship is open to any student dedicated to a career in urban landscape planning and design, with special concern for sustainability, human ecology, and community. We offer one $10,000 scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year. [UPDATE: The scholarship for the 2014-2015 academic year has been awarded.]
Applicants to the class of 2014-2015 may apply for the SCI Fellowship by submitting one additional essay. In 300-700 words, address the following and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- How will an education at the Conway School and a focus on urban issues prepare you for a successful career contributing to urban ecological design topics such as: sustainable cities, urban and regional planning, food security, energy, transportation, human ecology, and resilient local economies.
- What role might you play? Include examples of geographic locations, jobs, and potential employers.
- Convince us that by awarding you this Fellowship, we’ll empower a future designer of sustainable communities.
- Please also make sure you’ve included in your resume any experience and education that relate to issues of urban ecological design.
Applications for the SCI Fellowship will be accepted now through March 15, the final admissions deadline. Fellowships will be awarded on a rolling basis, so if you intend to apply, please submit your application soon. To be considered for the SCI Fellowship, you must have completed your application for admission and been invited for an interview. No student will be eligible for both a need-based grant from Conway and the SCI Fellowship.
This will be Conway’s third year offering the SCI Fellowship. Our first Fellow, Kim Smith, graduated in 2013 and went on to take a job as Assistant Planner at the Windham Regional Commission in Brattleboro, VT.
