The James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation will award Fitch Mid-Career research grants of up to $15,000 to mid-career professionals who have an academic background, professional experience, and an established identity in historic preservation or related fields including, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, environmental planning, architectural history, and the decorative arts.
The Foundation will also offer the Richard L. Blinder Award, a biennial grant of up to $15,000 for the best proposal exploring the preservation of an existing structure, complex of buildings or genre of building type through addition, renovation or other means. The subject of the submission may be a real project or a polemical exercise; in either case originality is highly valued. The proposal must demonstrate that it fosters architectural preservation in the United States.
