Fellowship origin

Harry der Boghosian '54Harry der Boghosian '54The Harry der Boghosian Fellowship was established by a transformational gift made by Paula de Boghosian ’64 EDU, to honor her brother, Harry der Boghosian, a 1954 graduate of the School of Architecture. The gift is the largest ever made by a living donor to the School of Architecture. The fellowship provides faculty, early in their careers, with a unique opportunity to spend a year developing a body of design research while teaching at the School of Architecture.
