Since 2001, the Architecture Foundation of Oregon has been privileged to work with The Van Evera and Janet M. Bailey Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation in awarding the now $25,000 annual Van Evera Bailey Fellowship to advance the professional development of mid-career architects and related professionals, encouraging greater contributions to their profession and their community.
Fellowship projects may follow a variety of paths, from pure research involving reflection on professional issues and challenges, to practical research involving projects designed to have specific results. Examples of eligible activities include, but are not limited to:
- sabbaticals for study of innovative design or technology in architecture or related fields
- collaborations of architects and planners or others
- preparation of public education projects
- research and writing on a specific topic
Support may be requested for stipends, travel, lodging, materials, and other relevant needs. The Fellowship is intended to promote dissemination and application of ideas. Projects must include follow-up activities such as seminars, written documentation, lectures, media presentations, tours, or other means to share results with the professional community and general public.
