The Parker Fellowship
|Amount$10000||Number Available1||FacultyFaculty of Engineering and Built Environment|
|Donor||The Architecture Foundation|
The Parker fellowship was established in memory of Eric Clarence Parker, who, in 1957 became the first permanent teacher of Architecture to be appointed to the fledgling School of Architecture at the Newcastle University College.
The school, formed in 1925, grew out of a call by the regional architectural profession for a professional architecture program to be offered in Newcastle to service the needs of local and regional practices.
Eric Parker was head of the school from 1957 to 1965 and later, in 1974, was Professor of Architecture and Dean of the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Newcastle until his retirement in 1984.
From 2007, the fellowship is funded directly by donations made to the University of Newcastle by The Architecture Foundation in support of the fellowship. The purpose of the fellowship is to support an architecture student to undertake a program of travel that will be of benefit to them both personally and educationally.
