Non-residential fellowships are awarded annually to a
diverse group of twelve distinguished mid-career professionals with an
active interest in the interdisciplinary process of community building.
Fellows pursue independent research projects and take part in intensive
community-building workshops, seminars, and a charrette.
Fields from which fellows are selected include
economic and community development, housing, human services,
transportation, architecture, planning, real estate, journalism, and
The fellowship focuses on a different theme each
year. During 2001 the focus was revitalization issues at the neighborhood
and community scale. For 2002, the fellowship concentrated on suburban
problems and regional growth and in 2003 the focus was on place making.
The community building fellowship program is on hiatus during the
2006-07 academic year, a time period dedicated to follow-up with our
five charrette communities, program evaluation. and new assistance and
outreach efforts with other Knight communities including communities in
the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Other major efforts we are working on
include the development of a masterís program in real estate development
and urbanism, and an online course in New Urbanism. Please check our
website regularly for updates and for our call for applications for our
next group of Knight Program Fellows.
