Byron Hanke Fellowship

Scholarship Description

Hanke Fellowship applicants must be enrolled in an accredited master’s, doctoral or law program.  Students of all disciplines are welcome to apply for the Hanke Fellowships, provided their studies relate to community associations generally and to the topic of the candidate’s proposed community associations research project.  In the past, the CAI-RF has recognized outstanding achievement in the academic study of community associations through the annual CAI Research Foundation Award of Excellence.  Papers submitted for this prestigous award have come from a wide range of academic disciplines, including law, economics, sociology, and urban planning.  All of these disciplines are appropriate areas of graduate studies for a Hanke Fellowship, along with any others which the Research Foundation may be persuaded are relevant to community associations.  Within the field of community associations and common-interest communities, Hanke Fellowship projects may address management, institutions, organization and administration, public policy, architecture, as well as political, economic, social and intellectual trends in community association housing.  Projects may focus on either applied or theoretical research.  The Research Foundation is especially interested in substantive papers from the social sciences which place community association housing within political or economic organizational models.  In all cases, the topic must have the approval of the graduate student’s general academic advisor, or of another full-time faculty member, who will supervise the Hanke Fellow’s Project.  The project topic must have the potential to further understanding of residential community associations.
