The Thirteenth Annual Berkeley Undergraduate Prize for Architectual Design Excellence 2011
Berkeley Prize 2011

The 2011 Architectural Design Fellowship Competition

This opportunity is open to each student who placed as a semifinalist in the 2011 BERKELEY PRIZE Essay Competition.


This Fellowship offers you the opportunity to stage a local or regional architectural student design competition for the benefit of your community and to further explore the meaning and potentials of the social art of architecture.  Your competition idea should be based on some aspect of the Essay you have submitted in response to the current year’s topic of Valuing the Sacred.  It should be held this year.

The student awarded the Fellowship will be provided with funds to stage the local competition and to provide individual cash prizes for the winners. You will be asked to name a Faculty or Administrative Advisor within your academic institution for your competition. He or she must agree to assist you with any professional guidance needed to make the competition a success.

It will be up to you, however, to decide the scope of the competition, how you intend to publicize it, establish the entry requirements, establish a time schedule, select judges, and determine the awards. You will be asked to provide the BERKELEY PRIZE with periodic updates on the progress of your competition and a final report on the results, all of which will be posted on the BERKELEY PRIZE website.

Read the archives of previous years for successful Proposals and Reports for the local competitions and to view the winning entries from those competitions.
