The Competition for the 2019-20 CINTAS Foundation Fellowship in Architecture & Design will open in March 2019.
Candidates in the fields of architectural design, interior design, urban design and urban planning may submit applications for the fellowship. All materials should be submitted digitally if possible, on cd, dvd or flash drive. Hard copies of work samples are optional but may be included in one portfolio. In the event items are submitted which are not firmly attached to a portfolio, each should be individually labeled to show the applicant's name. The date of execution of each work should be given. For the purpose of historical value, the winner is expected to submit signed and dated portfolio to be added to the CINTAS Fellows Collection.
Since 1963, the CINTAS Foundation has awarded over 21 fellowships in architecture. In addition to supporting Cuban artists, many early in their careers, the CINTAS Foundation also maintains a growing collection of works by past awardees and other esteemed Cuban artists. For the purpose of historical value and documentation, architectural award recipients are encouraged to submit architectural drawings (i.e., representative samples of their work) to be added to the CINTAS Fellows Collection after the grant period.
