Applications are open for the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship 2020/2021 for Emerging Designers. Named in honor of award-winning architect and educator Doug Garofalo (1958–2011), the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is an annual nine-month teaching fellowship that provides an emerging designer the opportunity to teach studio and seminar courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs and conduct independent design research.
During its second semester, the fellowship includes a public lecture at the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in Fine Arts and an exhibition, which is typically held at the school. Now in its seventh year, the Garofalo Fellowship has made an essential contribution to the school’s culture. The successful candidate will be expected to be in primary residence in Chicago from mid-August 2020 through mid-May 2021.
The Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of individual and corporate donations, as well as grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
