AIA College of Fellows

 

About the College of Fellows

The College of Fellows, founded in 1952, is composed of members of the Institute who are elected to Fellowship by a jury of their peers. Fellowship is one of the highest honors the AIA can bestow upon a member. Elevation to Fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual but also elevates before the public and the profession those architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and to society.

Meet the 2015 Elevated Fellows

The Fellowship program was developed to elevate those architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture and society and who have achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Election to fellowship not only recognizes the achievements of architects as individuals, but also their significant contribution to architecture and society on a national level.

The 2015 Jury of Fellows from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) elevated 147 AIA members to its prestigious College of Fellows. Out of a total AIA membership of over 85,000 there are over 3,200 members distinguished with this honor.

Emerging Professional Component Grants

The College of Fellows has established a grants fund to assist AIA components in the development of programs which foster the mission of Young Architects and Associates. These funds may be used to enhance the activities of an existing Emerging Professionals group or as seed money to help start a new one. Because one of the goals of the component grants program is to make Emerging Professionals groups a vital component activity, an explanation or demonstration of component commitment and support is essential. 

The College of Fellows awarded a total of $34,540 in funding to support component Emerging Professionals programs in 2014. View the 2014 recipients.


The call for proposals for the 2015 grant program is now open. Please review the 2015 guidelines here. The application deadline has been extended from May 22, 2015 to June 22, 2015 at 11:59 PM.



Latrobe Prize

The Latrobe Prize is a biennial $100,000 award from the AIA College of Fellows to support a two-year program of research selected by jury review. The grant, named for architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, is awarded for research leading to significant advances in the architecture profession.
