Cleo and James Marston Fitch Prize

Named in honor of James Marston Fitch (1909-2000), the founder of the Historic Preservation program at Columbia University, this prize is awarded annually for the best paper or project completed during the first year of studies. Submissions may include projects completed by an individual or team of two.

Through the generous contributions of PA members, in recent years the prize has carried a $500 award.
