The mission of the Vilcek Foundation is to raise public awareness of the outstanding contributions of foreign-born scientists and artists living and working in the United States. To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from architects and building professionals who demonstrate extraordinary talent, dedication, and potential to advance the field of architecture.
The prizes are meant to facilitate future discovery and impact for promising architects and building arts professionals at a critical stage in their careers.
To be eligible, applicants must have been born outside the United States; not be more than 38 years old as of December 31, 2017; be a naturalized citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) of the United States; intend to pursue a professional career in the United States; and not be a past winner or finalist of the Vilcek Prize for Creative Promise.
