The highly competitive Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship develops the next generation of leaders in community- based design. Rose Fellows take part in a unique three-year experience offering unparalleled learning and networking opportunities. As integral members of their host organizations’ staff, fellows gain practical experience in site acquisition, site planning, architectural design, developing financial pro-formas, applying for financing and obtaining public approvals. Fellows also typically help their hosts improve standards and practices for design excellence, sustainability and community engagement. Rose Fellows also gain a national support system of colleagues who share their passion for public interest architecture and community development.

As full-time employees of their host organizations, fellows earn an annual stipend plus the standard insurance and benefits package provided by their host organization. The stipend for fellowships beginning in 2015 is $50,000.
