    The Society of Architectural Historians is accepting applications for the 2014 H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellowship, which allows a recent graduate or emerging scholar to study by travel for one year. The fellowship is not for the purpose of doing research for an advanced degree. Instead, it is intended to allow the recipient to see and experience architecture and landscapes firsthand, to think about his/her profession deeply, and to acquire knowledge useful for his/her future work and contribution to society. The fellow may travel to any country or countries during the one-year period. A $50,000 award will be provided to cover expenses. Applicants must be scholars who will earn a Ph.D. or advanced terminal degree in the first half of 2014 (by June 30, 2014), or an emerging scholar who was awarded a Ph.D. or advanced terminal degree between the years 2009-2013 in a field related to the built environment.
