Since 1995, The Deborah J. Norden Fund, established in memory of architect and arts administrator Deborah Norden, has awarded up to $5,000 annually in travel and study grants to students and recent graduates in the fields of architecture, architectural history, and urban studies. The Deborah J. Norden Fund is a program of The Architectural League of New York.
The Fund has supported a fascinating array of projects, from a study of the Cambodian modernist Vann Molyvann, to the social impact of new architecture and planning interventions in Medellin, Colombia, to the insertion of built form into fragile ecosystems in Australia, to the stereotomy of complex surfaces in French Baroque architecture. The intention of the Fund is to support genuinely independent projects that require travel.
