THE FELLOWSHIP

BARRIERS DOSHI WE KNOW FELLOWSHIP – 2019 THE FELLOWSHIP A young person in an early stage

A young person in an early stage of a career may reflect upon contextual situation,

study existing ways of working upon it, learn from more experienced creative persons and experiment with innovative ideas and approaches to build up the capacity to respond to the challenges facing us. The Doshi Fellowship will support scholars primarily in the field of architecture and the built environment but can

consider other fields of study that impinge upon this area.

The Doshi Fellowship is meant to support young scholars and practitioners who wish to study a contemporary situation, involve themselves in ways of responding to its challenges, or carry out innovative experiments to research some aspect of the situation.

The Fellowship will be awarded to those who have demonstrated their commitment

to excellence through their work, either academically or in the field, and who propose

a definite and creative manner of pursuing an interest in line with the above-stated

objectives of the sponsors. The Fellowship sponsors are open to diverse ways in which the awardees may propose to use provisions of the Fellowship. Applicants should indicate how they intend to use the fellowship for consideration by the judges.

AWARD

Awardees will be provided a sum of Rs. 1,00,000/- as support for pursuing their interest. In general, there will be one such award, but in exceptional cases, the Fellowship organisers may award more than one fellowship, and the sum may then be shared.

Awardees will be associated with an advisor or mentor. The fellowship organisers will decide the persons who will be advisors or mentors. Such persons will generally be from amongst the Alumni of Faculty of Architecture, CEPT, Ahmedabad, but where necessary others may be requested to mentor the awardee.

ELIGIBILITY

Young persons between the ages of 25 and 35, preferably architects or those connected with the issues of environment or those involved in any discipline or skill(s), who have demonstrated exceptional ability to evolve creative and innovative ideas and approaches relating to build environment and human habitations that enhance the welfare of communities and show concern for the environment.

DOSHI WE KNOW

The “Doshi We Know” group, DWK in short, is a coming together of Prof. Doshi's past students, alumni of schools under CEPT, and other individuals who wish to take forward the immense legacy created by Doshi in the fields of education and societal concern.

The group is now a non-profit Trust and will continue activities that take forward the aims of the group. Prof. Doshi has consented to guide the group and its activities.

A BRIEF HISTORY

To celebrate Professor Doshi’s 70th birthday in the year 1997 Snehal Shah and Muktirajsinhji Chauhan organised a celebration event at CEPT, Ahmedabad, when the ‘Doshi We Know’ group was formed to set up scholarship fund. The idea was first proposed by Vidyadhar Chavda and Suresh Patel joined by donating funds under the name DWK. Sunil Shah and others subsequently donated and many CEPT Alumnus Community contributed towards the fund.

Since it’s inception till 2012 DWK existed but needed a revival. Suresh Patel realised this and committed to reinvigorate the DWK Group and this resulted in more donations. Rajesh Shah offered his support and his office (VIKAS) became an operational base. Celebration of 50 years of School of Architecture also allowed further awareness of the DWK group.

DWK Group took a lead role in organising and planning Prof. Doshi’s 90th birthday in 2017 and the DWK Scholarship, a pan-India scholarship was announced at the celebration. A committee of six with input from Prof. Doshi has been working on the modality of the scholarship. This scholarship will be annual.
