Deadline | Noon on January 26, 2018

The Knowlton School's Architecture Research Travel Awards (ARTA) program was established to encourage independent travel and research initiatives of up to 30 days by Knowlton students from all degree programs. The ARTA program is made possible by generous support from the Columbus Foundation. In the fall semester following completion of their projects, ARTA winners present their work at the School.

In order to qualify for participation in the program, students must be a US citizen and be able to provide 25 percent matching funds for their travel. Students also must make a public presentation at the school about their summer research experience during the fall semester following their travels.
