Diversity is at the core of the Loeb Fellowship.
We believe the experience of the year in residence is enhanced by sharing it most intensely with people who bring a wide variety of cultural heritage, lived experience and professional training.
We believe Fellows will best help shape the urban and natural environment by drawing upon the strengths and wisdom of the full range of people who live, work and play in it.
The Fellowship serves in an advisory role to a number of student groups at the GSD, especially those concerned with diversity issues, including Women in Design and the African American Student Union, supporting activities that promote a more diverse and inclusive community.
The Fellowship can play a valuable role in elevating talented practitioners with diverse experiences and sensibilities into prominent positions in cities, where they can effect positive change and have broad social impact.
The ideal Fellows are global citizens who share the Fellowship's value of mutual learning with people from different countries and cultures.
We strongly encourage women, people of color, nationals from countries outside the US and professionals with experience in diverse community settings to consider applying to the Fellowship. A completed degree in higher education is not a requirement. Professionals with atypical backgrounds or unusual career paths who have demonstrated the capacity to make a difference in their fields are encouraged to apply.
