The Frederick P. Rose Architectural Fellowship was established in 1999 by The Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose Foundation to assist recent architectural school graduates in directing their skills in the service of low and moderate-income communities. The Fellowship is designed to promote architectural and community design in low-income communities and encourages architects to become life-long leaders in public service and community development. The Fellowship honors the late Frederick P. Rose, a prominent philanthropist and developer, who believed strongly in the value of good design and the spirit of public service.

The Fellowship includes a 3-year stipend of $45,000 per year ($52,000 in high cost areas). Applicants are expected to identify, and work for, a local Community Development Corporation (CDC) or a local Non-Profit Organization (NPO) for the 3-year period. The sponsoring CDC or NPO is expected to provide space and general overhead costs, as necessary, and may choose to augment the stipend, if they so desire.

The Fellowship is managed and administered by Enterprise Community Partners, a national, non-profit housing and community development organization. Its mission is to ensure that all low-income people in the United States have the opportunity for fit and affordable housing and to move up and out of poverty and into the mainstream of American life.

Through Enterprise’s network of more than 1100 non-profit, community-based organizations in over 400 locations, they are helping to build a national movement to promote housing and community development in low-income neighborhoods. Since 1982, Enterprise has helped develop more than 100,000 new and renovated homes by raising and committing more than $3 billion in loans, grants and equity investments.
