A new prize offers a Pritzker-sized purse for young architects. The Harvard Graduate School of Design‘s Wheelwright Prize is a $100,000 traveling fellowship that will be awarded annually to talented early-career architects worldwide. It’s an expansion of the school’s annual Arthur W. Wheelwright Traveling Fellowship (established in memory of Wheelwright, an 1887 GSD grad), intended to encourage the study of architecture outside the United States and formerly available only to GSD alums. Past fellows include Paul Rudolph, Eliot Noyes, I. M. Pei, and Adèle Naudé Santos. Now architects practicing anywhere in the world can apply for the prize, proposing research agendas outside of one’s country of residence. If you’ve graduated from a professionally accredited architecture degree program in the past 15 years, start polishing your portfolio along with a proposal for a research project accompanied by a travel itinerary. Applications will be accepted from January 10 through February 28. The winner, to be selected by an international jury, will be named on May 15, 2013.
