The Richard Morris Hunt Prize (RMHP) is an intensive and curated six-month program, divisible in two or three periods, that carries a $20,000 award for registered architects to pursue research related to contemporary challenges in historic preservation.  Each year only one Fellow is selected.  However, in years where the applicant pool demonstrates exceptional merit, a Scholar may also be selected by the Jury from the Fellow candidates for a shorter five-week specialized course of research and study with a $5,000 award.  As part of the RMH experience, the Fellow/Scholar benefits from guidance and access to a network of the leading historic preservation professionals in France and the United States.  

The American Architectural Foundation (AAF) and the French Heritage Society (FHS) established the Hunt Fellowship in 1990, and it continues to foster and support cross-cultural professional exchange between France and the United States.  U.S. design professionals study in France and French design professionals study in the U.S. during alternating years.

How to apply
Interested 2017 RMHP candidates should be U.S. citizens, registered architects with 5+ years work experience, have a minimum of professional working proficiency speaking skills in French, and have the ability to travel to France for six months (spread across two or three periods.) The travel and research program for the American honorees will be established and managed under the guidance of the Managing Team in France. In addition, the Fellow/Scholar must submit a Final Report to AAF and FHS within one year of the last month of the Fellowship, the Scholar within six months. The Reports are intended to respond to the current issues in contemporary architectural practice.
