Fellowships

Design Trust Fellows are top professionals from the private-sector who lead the research, design and planning work for our projects. The exact role and expertise is based on the nature of the project – in the past we've worked with journalists, transportation experts, urban planners, water resource engineers, filmmakers, public policy experts, information designers, architects, photographers, public health experts, and graphic designers.

Getting a Design Trust Fellowship is like getting the New York version of the Rome Prize – it provides an opportunity to investigate something in depth with support and resources from a nonprofit and city agencies.

Partners

The Design Trust believes that public/private partnerships are the most effective way to advance the quality of our public realm. We will not undertake a project unless the city agency or community group best situated to implement the designs and plans we develop is involved from the very beginning. For that reason, every Design Trust project is conducted in full partnership with the organization that proposed the project idea to us.

Volunteer

Occasionally we need more hands to help us do our work. From installing public exhibits to leading tours to staffing one of our events, we cannot do our work without dedicated volunteers who believe in our mission. 

If you are interested in volunteering some of your time and expertise to help us fulfill our mission, we would love to hear from you!
