Deborah J. Norden Fund Established

Ronal Rael’s 2000 Norden Fund grant supported research on the Earthern architecture of the Wadi Hadhramaut in Yemen.

“The Deborah J. Norden Fund, established in 1995 in memory of architect and arts administrator Deborah Norden, awards travel/study grants to students and recent graduates in the fields of architecture, architectural history, and urban studies. The intention of the Fund is to support genuinely independent projects. Grant funds cannot be used for tuition, and grants will not be awarded to support an individual’s participation in an organized program, such as a university’s summer abroad program….Preference will be given to strong proposals from applicants who have not had this sort of opportunity before.” Call for Submissions
