The global planning and design firm, Hart Howerton has named Zina Fraser (MLA ’23) to its Research & Travel Fellowship Program for 2022. Fraser’s proposal to investigate the broader implications of climate change adaptation will take her to Prince Edward Island, Canada, where she will examine the area’s changing landscape and mitigation strategies for rising sea levels.

“Year by year, the energy, enthusiasm and quality of research from each class of Hart Howerton Fellows has been extraordinary,” states Hart Howerton Chairman, David Howerton. “It is exciting to help foster this next generation of design thinking.”

The Hart Howerton Fellowship is open to planning, architecture, landscape architecture and urban design students who are entering their final year of study. The fellowship defines an 8-week professional internship, followed by the Fellow’s self-defined topic of travel study. View the 2022 Fellowship details.

Now in its sixteenth year, the Fellowships offer students an unparalleled learning experience, working as part of Hart Howerton’s project team in either their New York or San Francisco office and pursuing a self-defined research and travel topic. Fellows return to the offices after their travel to complete their professional internship and prepare a final “report,” which is presented to the firm.
