2006 Steedman Fellowship International Design Competition
The Steedman Fellowship, granted since 1925, is awarded biannually on
the basis of an International Design Competition. The Competition is
supported by an endowment given to the Washington University School of
Architecture in honor of James Harrison Steedman, who received a degree
in mechanical engineering from Washington University in 1889, and was
killed in active duty during World War I. The memorial was established
by Steedman's widow, Mrs. Alexander Weddel, and Steedman's brother, George.
The Steedman Traveling Fellowship enables graduates of accredited
professional degree programs in architecture around the world to travel
for architectural research and study in foreign countries for a period
of nine months. The $30,000 Fellowship is awarded to the winner of the
Steedman International Design Competition. The award is based on the
quality of the selected winner's competition design entry, but the
quality of his/her research proposal is also considered.
Candidates must be graduates of an accredited school of architecture,
and be currently employed in, or have completed at least one year of
practical experience in the office of a practicing architect. Candidates
are eligible to compete for up to eight years after receipt of their
professional degrees, regardless of age. Citizens of all countries are
eligible to compete for the Fellowship.
