SSRC-Van Alen Fellows Program
The program has been discontinued and this record is displayed for archival/historical purposes.
SSRC-Van Alen New York Prize Fellowships support work on the intersection between social dynamics and the built environment. Since 2008, two rounds of fellowships have been offered in collaboration with the Van Alen Institute
, an independent nonprofit architectural organization, on issues of urban sustainability and the ‘spatialization’ of information policy. Grants were awarded to partnerships between social scientists and architectural/design specialists. Investigations may take a range of formats, including installations, demonstrations, performances, and workshops, but are by their involvement of the general public.
