The Loeb Fellowship was established in 1970 through the generosity of the late John L. Loeb, Harvard College ’24. Based at the Graduate School of Design, the program offers ten annual postprofessional awards for independent study at Harvard.
Through the Fellowship, participants have access to the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School of Design, the Graduate School of Education, Harvard Business School, Harvard College, Harvard Divinity School, Harvard Law School, the Kennedy School of Government, and M.I.T.
The Fellowship is a unique opportunity to nurture the leadership potential of the most promising men and women in design and other professions related to the built and natural environment. It enhances the excellence of the GSD by exposing students to some of the most exciting midcareer professionals in their fields. John Loeb realized this potential when he endowed the Loeb Fellowship to fill a special place in American education: one that would greatly increase the practical effectiveness of the design professions. Now entering its fourth decade, with over 300 alumni, the Fellowship has made substantial progress toward that goal.
