We launched the Richard Morris Hunt Prize so experienced French and American architects could have the opportunity to work on a historic conservation and restoration design project overseas. Every year, the Richard Morris Hunt Prize judges announce a fellow who will travel either to France or the US for six months and a scholar who will go for five weeks. Fellows and scholars alternate between being French and American. The panel of judges who pick the French awardees who will travel to the US convenes in France and the panel of judges who pick the US awardees who will travel to France convenes in Washington, DC. Applications must be submitted according to the terms and conditions and by the deadline published every year on the Richard Morris Hunt Prize website.
