The School of Public Health is accepting applications for the 2018–2019 Roselyn Lindheim Award. This award honors the life and work of Roselyn Lindheim (1921–1987), Professor of Architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. A generous endowment from her husband, the late Richard Lindheim, her children, Susan and Daniel, colleagues, and friends provides for an annual award to a student pursuing a graduate degree on the UC Berkeley campus.

Awards will consist of stipends up to $10,000 for one or two continuing graduate students. Recipient(s) must be registered during both terms of the 2018–19 academic year to be eligible for the award.

This award supports the work-in-progress of a graduate student that best exemplifies and furthers Professor Lindheim’s unique vision and innovative work in shaping community, architectural and/or public health environments that promote quality of life and wellness. The work in progress should aim to integrate the social, physical, cultural and political aspects of improving population well-being. Projects with an interdisciplinary approach in which professionals and clients collaborate are highly valued. The award is intended to assist students in furthering work-in-progress and in disseminating the results to a wide audience. The work can be research or service-oriented and must be completed within one year of receiving the award.
