The Taconic Fellowship supports Pratt Institute faculty, staff, and students working on community development projects throughout New York City.
About the Fellowship
The Taconic Fellowship provides financial awards for projects that align with Pratt Center’s urban planning and policy work to advance sustainable and equitable community development in New York City and its neighborhoods. The goals of the Fellowship are to facilitate “beyond the gates” community service projects and support Pratt Institute’s commitment to collaboration, interdisciplinary projects, and service learning.
The Taconic Fellowship supports projects that use a ground-up, community-based approach to tackling issues of urban sustainability and socioeconomic inequity. Fellowships are awarded to teams of Pratt Institute faculty and students working in close collaboration with a community-based organization on a project which addresses a community need. The maximum award per project is $12,000, and it is intended to allow Pratt teams to engage in a collaborative design, decision-making and implementation process with the community organization.
