The Docomomo US/Northern California chapter is excited to announce its 2021 National Symposium call for applications!


The Docomomo US/NOCA Symposium Grant provides financial support for students and emerging professionals committed to the documentation and conservation of Modern Movement buildings, landscapes, and sites. The intent of this year’s scholarship is to enable up to three individuals to participate in the Docomomo US 2021 National Symposium.


The Docomomo US/NOCA Travel Grant provides up to three grants for related expenses, including:

  • Registration to National Symposium 
  • Registration to all virtual tours offered during the Symposium


The scholarship is open to current undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students enrolled in established institutions of higher learning, as well as emerging professionals who have graduated within the past three years.

Applicants must be actively engaged in issues concerning the documentation and conservation of buildings, sites, and neighborhoods of the Modern Movement. “Documentation” may be in the form of research or scholarship, such as thesis or class projects, related to architecture, design, or planning topics associated with the 20th Century Modern Movement. Preference will be given to applicants with current or previous engagement on topics related to Northern California.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate their committed interest in the subject and how the scholarship will meaningfully advance their goals or work.


Application deadline is April 30, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. PST. has been extended to Sunday, May 16, 2021 at 11:59 pm PST.
