Apply to become a Huxtable Fellow at the BAC! Huxtable Fellows will receive a $2800 stipend to work on two Gateway projects over the course of the 2013-2014 academic year, offering critical mentorship, leadership, and instruction to the other students on the Gateway project teams.
The Fellowship pays tribute to the design leadership career of Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic Ada Louise Huxtable, who received an Honorary Degree from the BAC in 2012.
Ms Huxtable's passion for effective design, persuasive critical analysis, and uncompromisingly high standards have, in the words of BAC President Ted Landsmark, "inspired the general public and design practitioners to understand the importance of good design as it improves the joy and experience of the spaces within which we live, work and play. Her voice has transcended formalism and consistently brought attention to how design can address the needs of real people in varying cultural contexts."
The six Fellows chosen will be required to attend Fellows Summits over the course of the semester, organized by the Huxtable Faculty Advisor (Marilyn Moedinger, Director of Gateway), as well as a special event with BAC Overseers and other mentors.
This brand new initiative at the BAC, funded by Cummings Foundation through a OneWorld Boston grant, is a prestigious opportunity for advanced students to participate as mentors and leaders.
- be currently enrolled as a student at the BAC in one of the onsite degree-granting programs
- be in good academic standing
- be in Segment 2 or 3 of their program
- be able to commit to 6-8 hours a week during each semester to Fellowship/Gateway work
