Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, at the University of Toronto, invites applications for a two-year Emerging Architect Fellowship Award in areas of architectural research and design, with particular focus on topics that address issues of climate and the built environment.

The fellowship project will be exhibited and disseminated by May 2026, including a public lecture at the Daniels Faculty.
