Brown Fellowship Program
Robert S. Brown’ 52 Fellows Program
This travel program was established in 1988 by Mrs. Helen C. Brown in loving memory of her son, Robert S. Brown ʼ52, a 1952 graduate of Rensselaerʼs School of Architecture. The fund is intended to expand the educational opportunities and broaden the cultural base available to Rensselaerʼs architecture students and/or faculty. The program provides travel fellowships to Rensselaer School of Architecture students and faculty.
Goal of the Student Fellowship: The intent of the Brown Fellows Program is to provide a unique opportunity for students within the Rensselaer architecture program to consider architecture as an international discipline with global reach. Through the generous support of our alum Robert S. Brown, students will be able to experience in person the brilliant legacy and traditions of historical and contemporary architecture from around the world that is integral to a proposed research investigation that supports an academic and career trajectory. Offered as a compliment to their education here in the US, this unique travelling fellowship is also intended to provide a multi-cultural experience, in preparation for assuming a leadership position within the discipline in the years ahead.
