The Docomomo US/New York Tri-State Symposium Grant provides financial support for students and emerging professionals committed to the documentation and conservation of Modern Movement buildings, landscapes, and sites. The intent of this year’s scholarship is to enable two individuals to participate in the Docomomo US 2023 National Symposium in New Haven, CT (June 21–25, 2023).
The 2023 Docomomo US/NY Tri-state National Symposium Grant provides a single grant (up to $1200) for related expenses, including (but not limited to):

The remainder of the award will be granted upon receipt of the recipient’s travel expenses and completion of reporting requirements.
The scholarship is open to current undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students enrolled in established institutions of higher learning, as well as emerging professionals who have graduated within the past five years.
