Fellowships

Drexell Fellowships Program

Fellowships come in all shapes and sizes and have a variety of goals. Some are for international experiences and others support activities here at home. Some fund students in particular fields of study or professional paths; others target special populations such as underrepresented racial or ethnic groups, women, LGBTQ students, or those with financial need. Yet others are open to anyone with vision and talent.

What they have in common is that these are all nationally-competitive, prestigious programs that support outstanding students and provide top-notch opportunities -- research, study, service, travel, mentoring, networking, or other professional experiences.  

WHR Architects Tradewell Fellowships

The Tradewell Fellowship was created to build careers of aspiring healthcare architects. Each year, the Tradewell Fellow is involved with clients in early master planning and design with a particular focus on healing environments and collaborative design methods. The year-long Fellowship typically begins and ends in July and includes employment at WHR Architects in Houston.
