Applications for 2022 funding are now being accepted. Applications must be submitted by November 10, 2021, at 11PM EST. Applicants may apply for one of three available grants: the FITCH Mid-Career Fellowship, a Richard L. BLINDER Award, and the Samuel H. KRESS Fellowship (scroll for award descriptions).

Since 1989, the James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation has been in the vanguard of historic preservation practice and theory. The mission of the Fitch Foundation is to support professionals in the field of historic preservation, and to achieve this we provide mid-career grants to those working in preservation, landscape architecture, urban design, environmental planning, materials conservation, decorative arts, architectural design and history, and allied fields.

FITCH MID-CAREER FELLOWSHIP:  One research grant of up to $15,000 may be awarded to a mid-career professional who has an academic background, professional experience and an established identity in one or more of the following fields: historic preservation, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, environmental planning, architectural history and the decorative arts. The James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation will consider proposals for the research and/or the execution of the preservation-related projects in any of these fields. View eligibility details and more.

 RICHARD L. BLINDER AWARD:  Presented biennially to an architect or other professional in a related historic preservation field for a proposal exploring architecture and preservation. The proposal may focus on a real project or it may be a polemical exercise; in either case, originality is highly valued. The proposal must advance architectural preservation in the United States. The product can be graphic, text-based or a combination of both and must be able to be shared with the architecture and preservation community. The award is for a sum not to exceed $15,000. View eligibility details and more.

 SAMUEL H. KRESS MID-CAREER FELLOWSHIP:  Research grants of up to $15,000 may be awarded to a mid-career professional whose research aligns with the mission of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation in the context of historic preservation in the United States. Potential Kress Fellow projects could include the exploration of shared European and American influences in style, design, materials, construction techniques, building types, conservation and interpretation methodologies, philosophical and theoretical attitudes, and other factors applicable to preservation in both Europe and America. Funding for this fellowship is made possible through the generous support of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. View eligibility details and more.
Applications must be submitted by November 10, 2021, 11PM EST.  Please visit www.fitchfoundation.org to learn more about criteria for evaluation and eligibility.

The James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation is committed to actively contributing to the urgent call to diversify the field of historic preservation. For the Fitch Foundation, this goes beyond our selection of mid-career Fellows to cultivating the next generation of professionals and facilitating the discovery of preservation as a career path for BIPOC students. Towards this goal, we have reallocated funding to support promising young people, in partnership with preservation colleagues who share in our commitment. Learn more about our collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund’s HBCU Cultural Heritage Stewardship Initiative.
