Theodor Fischer Award

The Association of Friends of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte e.V. 'CONIVNCTA FLORESCIT' offers an annual award for distinguished research in the field of the history of architecture in the 19th to the 21th centuries.

The purpose of this award, named after the architect Theodor Fischer (1862-1938), is to encourage younger scholars to bring the results of their work to the attention of a broader public.

Consideration will be given to a Ph.D. dissertation, M.A. thesis, or scholarly article of larger scope, dealing with art historical questions in the history of architecture in the 19th and 20th centuries. Applicants should have an academic background.

The winning candidate chosen by an independent committee of scholars, will receive € 5,000 and is expected to spend three months conducting research at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich.

Candidates for the award are requested to send a copy of the research paper in question, along with a curriculum vitae detailing academic qualifications, copies of certificates and a list of publications to:
