James Marston Fitch worked on the restoration of Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

The three grants include:

The Fitch Mid-Career Fellowship: Research grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to one or more mid-career professionals who have an academic background, professional experience and an established identity in one or more of the following fields: historic preservation, architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, environmental planning, architectural history and the decorative arts. Proposals considered must include research and/or the execution of the preservation-related projects in any of these fields.

The Richard L. Blinder Award: An award up to $15,000 will be presented to a professional in a related historic preservation field for a proposal exploring architecture and preservation. The proposal may focus on a real project or it may be a polemical exercise. The proposal must advance architectural preservation in the United States. The product can be graphic, text-based or a combination of both and must be able to be shared with the architecture and preservation community.

The Samuel H. Kress Fellowship: Research grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to one mid-career professional whose research project relates to the appreciation, interpretation, preservation, study and teaching of European art, architecture and related disciplines from antiquity to the early 19th century, in the context of historic preservation in the United States. Potential Kress Fellow projects could include the exploration of shared European and American influences in style, design, materials, construction techniques, building types, conservation and interpretation methodologies, philosophical and theoretical attitudes and other factors applicable to preservation in both Europe and America.

The deadline for applications is Oct. 25. Visit fitchfoundation.org for more information.
