Traveling Fellowship

Robert James Eidlitz Fellowship

The Robert James Eidlitz Fellowship, the gift of Sadie Boulton Eidlitz, is available to persons who hold degrees in architecture from Cornell or who are now graduate students in architecture at Cornell. The fellowship's purpose is to supplement the professional training, by foreign travel or in other ways, of those who could not otherwise afford it. The income of the fund may be awarded to one or more candidates.

Additional fellowships are awarded based on academic performance and financial need. Contact the architecture department office for additional information.
