Call for Proposals for Michael Kalil Fellowship Project Grants



Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design

The mission of the Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design is twofold: to foster the understanding of the design intersections between nature and technology and to support a heightened sense of responsibility for increasing the sustainability of built environments.


Three $5000 Fellowship Project Grants are given annually:


The Student Grant supports the project of an undergraduate or graduate student studying at Parsons The New School for Design.

The Scholar/Practitioner Grant supports a current faculty member or group of faculty members from any New School division; or an outside scholar/practitioner from within any design field.

The Collaborative Team Grant supports a group of Parsons students working in collaboration from within or across any of the five Schools of Parsons the New School for Design. The five Schools are: The School of Art and Design History and Theory; The School of Art, Media, and Technology; The School of Fashion; The School of Constructed Environments; The School of Design Strategies.


Application Deadline: December 31, 2012


Proposals will be blind, without indication of the author on or in the Proposal itself.
