The Steedman Fellowship Governing Committee selected Johanna Yee and Emily Johnson as recipients of the 2016 Steedman Summer Travel Fellowship.

Awarded annually, the two $5,000 fellowships support the investigation of an architectural topic of the student's choosing. Recipients are selected by the committee on the basis of the student's proposed study outline, portfolio of work, and academic achievement. The committee noted that the winning proposals shared common qualities: ambition, focus, serious preparation, and evidence of concrete results.

Yee, a sophomore, received the undergraduate award for her proposed research into how the Indonesian island of Bali might apply traditional sustainable building methods to overcome emerging environmental challenges.

The graduate award will support MSAAD student Emily Johnson's international comparative analysis of pediatric inpatient healthcare architecture.

The committee also wished to acknowledge the particular merit found in MArch/MLA student Micah Stanek's proposed research on water resources management found in several locations in India.
