The Vernacular Architecture Forum (VAF) announces two awards to support attendance at its annual meeting, which will take place in 2018 in Alexandria, Virginia, May 2-5, 2018 (vafweb.org/Potomac-2018). The Access Award (vafweb.org/Access-Award) supports first-time attendance by scholars and students with limited professional exposure to the fields of architectural history and vernacular studies, as well as by practitioners and independent scholars in the field. The Ambassadors Awards (vafweb.org/Ambassadors-Awards) provide funding for student groups (undergraduate and graduate) from North American institutions, with a faculty sponsor, to attend VAF's annual conference. Applications for both awards are due February 1, 2018. For full instructions and more information visit VAF on the web.
