About the Rose Fellowship
The Enterprise Rose Architectural Fellowship partners early-career architectural designers with local community development organizations for a three-year term, where they facilitate an inclusive approach to development to create green, sustainable, and affordable communities. As an integral staff member of the organization, the fellow will focus on advancing the organization’s practices in community engagement, sustainability and design excellence. By becoming a fellow, you join a growing network of passionate and talented public interest designers who are continuously changing what is possible in community development. This year, fellowship opportunities are located with Quest Community Development Corporation in Atlanta, Epicenter in Green River, UT, Venice Community Housing in Los Angeles, CA, The Trust for Public Land based in St Paul, Minn., and the Fairmount Park Conservancy in Philadelphia.
About The Trust for Public Land
The Trust for Public Land creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. We have been connecting communities to the outdoors—and to each other—since our founding in 1972. To date, we have preserved more than 3 million acres, created or transformed close to 2,000 parks, playgrounds, and gardens, and developed more than 2,000 miles of trails across the United States. The Trust for Public Land has also helped states and local communities generate over $60 billion in new public funds for parks and open space. We believe that equity and fairness matter, and that creating more parks and green spaces can improves livability, health, prosperity, and quality of life for everyone. For that reason, we choose to work in places where lack of access to the benefits of nature contributes to broader disparities. As we engage people in the process of creating parks and protecting land, we seek out those who may face barriers to participation. And we believe that both our community engagement process and its results are transformational—that when we empower communities to create parks and protect land, we can address inequities beyond the boundaries of our work.
