Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellowship Program

Fall 2022 Deadlines: Fellowship applications are now closed

Pratt Institute has launched a fellowship program in design and architecture thanks to the generosity of the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Foundation, chaired by Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel. It will be awarded to two first-year graduate students, one in the School of Architecture and one in the School of Design, for their first year of graduate study at Pratt. The fellowship will be focused on students from underserved communities whose work concentrates on issues related to climate change. 

Applicants to the School of Architecture programs and the School of Design programs are eligible to apply to this opportunity, and the application process is described below.

The Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellows will be selected based on their portfolios of work that address the impacts and challenges of climate change. A call for applicants will be held in the spring prior to the fellowship year, and selection will be announced prior to the beginning of each fellowship year. More information about criteria is included in the application. 

The Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellows will be awarded to two first-year graduate students, one in the School of Architecture and one in the School of Design for their first year of graduate study at Pratt, whose work and portfolios concentrate on issues related to climate change. Fellows will receive tuition support totaling $48,000 in year one of graduate study.

The Fellowship may be renewed with partnership funding from the Institute for a second and third year (dependent on graduate program requirements) and to Fellows in good academic standing. For a 2-year graduate program tuition support will total $24,000 for year two of study. For a 3-year graduate program tuition support will total $12,000 in year two and $12,000 in year three.
