Submissions open next month for the Carter Manny Award

The Graham Foundation has announced a new application deadline for the Carter Manny Award, the foundation’s annual award for doctoral students working on dissertation topics in architecture. Since the Carter Manny Award’s establishment in 1996, over $672,000 has been awarded to support promising scholars whose doctoral projects shape contemporary discourse about architecture and significantly impact the field. Two Carter Manny Awards are given each year, one for dissertation writing and one for dissertation research. The foundation offers this prestigious annual award in honour of Carter H. Manny and his distinguished service to the Graham Foundation since its inception in 1956, first as a Trustee, then as Director from 1971, and since his retirement in 1993, as Director Emeritus.

The application will be available online on September 15, 2015, followed by the application deadline of November 15, 2015. Grant decision notification will be conducted in Spring 2016.

Students must be nominated by their department to apply for the Carter Manny Award. The award is open to students officially enrolled in schools in the US and Canada, regardless of citizenship. Further information about the application and award eligibility will be available on the Graham Foundation website on September 15, 2015.

The recipients of the 2015 Carter Manny Award will be announced on October 6, 2015.
