Fitch Mid-Career grants of up to $15,000 are awarded annually to one or two mid-career professionals with at least ten years of experience and an academic background, professional experience, and an established identity in one or more of the eligible fields. The foundation will consider proposals for research and/or execution of a preservation-related project in any of the eligible fields.

Projects will be evaluated based on a range of criteria, including the potential for the project to make a meaningful contribution to the academic and/or professional field of historic preservation in the United States and the innovativeness and creativity of the planned project.

Applicants must be legal residents or citizens of the United States.
