William A. Doebele Fellowship in Community Design
Administered through the Office of Career Services, the Fellowship provides stipends for current GSD students to contribute design and planning skills through Community Service Fellowship Program summer internships in nonprofit or governmental organizations.
The 2022 Doebele Fellows are:
Boya Zhou (MLA I AP ’23) will work with Matthew Mazzotta’18 and the St. Lawrence County Arts Council in Potsdam, New York. She will help to bring several rural communities into participation with contemporary design processes to tackle their unique and often neglected public spaces.
Sarah Page (MAUD ’23) will work at Broad Community Connections in New Orleans as a research and design intern in three major impact areas: project research and fieldwork, strategic planning, and undergraduate intern support.
Austin Sun (MArch I / MLA I ’24) will work at MASS Design Group where he will help on a project for a year round market and community food center in downtown Albuquerque. He will assist in the conceptual design phase, working on renderings, drawings, diagrams, and gathering feedback from local organizations.
Ilana Curtis (MDes Publics ’23) will work at the High Line Network in New York City where she will focus on event design and curation, photographic asset management, and researching, organizing, and strengthening the network member case study library to support ongoing technical assistance to the infrastructure reuse field.
The Stockard Fellowship celebrates James G. Stockard, Jr., (MCP ’68, LF ’78) who helped shape the Loeb Fellowship into a powerful force for positive change while inspiring a sense of social responsibility in countless GSD students. This Fund recognizes a meritorious student from any design discipline who shares Stockard’s commitment to advancing smart design concepts in affordable housing.
Abdul-Razak Zachariah MUP ’23 is the 2022-2023 Stockard Fellow. Read his report.
Druker Traveling Fellowship
Established in 1986 by Ronald M. Druker LF ’76 and by the Trustees of the Bertram A. Druker Charitable Foundation, the Druker Traveling Fellowship is open to all GSD Master’s degree candidates who demonstrate excellence in the design of urban environments. The fellowship offers students the opportunity to travel domestically or abroad to pursue study that advances their understanding of urban design.
Selkregg Innovation Fund
The Selkregg Loeb Fellowship Innovation Fund will allow the Loeb Fellowship Curator John Peterson (LF ’06) to explore ways to innovate and expand, building above and beyond the already influential program.
From time to time individual Loeb alumni create funds that support initiatives close to their hearts. The Phil Freelon Fellowship Fund is one such project that provides financial aid to expand academic opportunities for underrepresented students at the GSD. The Margaret McCurry Lecture in Design Arts supports an occasional lecture in the GSD schedule.
