Urban Design and Preservation Division Fellowship Program

About the Program

The intent of the UDP Fellowship Program is to foster increased interest in the study of and specialization in urban design and historic preservation, and the interrelationship between these two areas of planning at the advanced undergraduate and graduate levels and for new / emerging professionals.

One fellowship is awarded annually. The term of the fellowship may span anywhere from six months to one year and will include approximately 100 work hours. The fellow will receive a stipend commensurate to the agreed-upon work hours. Fellows conduct their fellowship duties remotely from where they live or attend school. Fellows report directly to the UDP Executive Committee.

Fellow responsibilities will include assisting the UDP Executive Committee with implementing the Division Work Plan such as:

  • Connecting with former members to encourage that they reinstate their membership status.
  • Follow up with members who have volunteered to help the Division and connect with each in an effort to match volunteer opportunities with volunteer interests.
  • Canvas professionals in the fields of urban design and preservation to identify trends. Compare academic trends to practice trends. Then, apply this information to division member benefits such as webinars, case studies, articles for publication in the UDP quarterly newsletter, and other benefits.
