Tejido Fellowship:

For the past seventeen years the Tejido Group has developed into an interdisciplinary and collaborative applied research program in which faculty and professionals in Landscape Architecture, Architecture and Planning work side by side with University graduate students in an apprenticeship-style professional / learning environment. Tejido is also an international experience and has collaborated on projects throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America. Project types include: urban design and neighborhood revitalization, coastal planning, eco-tourism and resort planning, campus master planning, small town revitalization master planning, and sustainable community master planning.

The Tejido Group will offer two one-thousand dollar fellowships for 2007-2008 awarded to those graduate students engaged in developing design and planning theses or masterís reports consistent in spirit and purpose to the collaborative, interdisciplinary and international community development work undertaken by past design and planning teams.

Tejido will select submissions based on two primary criteria: 1) project uniqueness and pedagogic value in developing the student into an exceptional practicing professional; 2) the projectís potential impact on society, the environment and the design and planning professions.

Graduate students in Landscape Architecture and Architecture should submit applications in digital form to Mark Frederickson by Monday, December 3rd 2007, and should include the following:

1) A thesis or masters report abstract of no more than 500 words. This should also include a brief discussion of how this body of work will facilitate the professional intentions of the candidate.

2) A concise resume and abbreviated digital portfolio of the candidateís design and planning work, (submittals can be presented as web-based, power point or in PDF format).

One fellowship will be granted to applicants from the graduate School of Landscape Architecture with the other available to graduate students in either the School of Architecture or Landscape Architecture. Submittals will be evaluated by past faculty participants and former team members who have now graduated.

Submittals should be copied to CD and sent to Debi Romero: School of Landscape Architecture / University of Arizona / P.O. Box 210075A / 1040 N. Olive / Tucson, Az.  85721-0075A. Please visit our website to further familiarize your self with the Tejido Group:  http://tejidogroup.com
