James Harrison Steedman Fellowship in Architecture


Established in 1926, the James Harrison Steedman Fellowship in Architecture is one of the oldest and most prestigious awards in the United States. The award—which has increased to $75,000 for 2021—is granted biannually to an emerging architect to support 6-12 months of international travel for architectural research. The fellowship, jointly administered by Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis and AIA St. Louis, is open to anyone, anywhere in the world, who has received an accredited degree in architecture within the last eight years.
