The Clay Lancaster Scholarship for Senior Gaines Fellows
Each year one Senior Fellow may be awarded the Clay Lancaster Scholarship on the basis of his or her thesis topic. For the Fellow to be eligible, his or her thesis must be germane to one of the many fields in which Clay Lancaster, author, artist, and Kentucky’s preeminent architectural historian studied and worked. Areas of focus include architecture, architectural history and preservation, Kentucky heritage, artists and art forms, Asian art, Eastern thought, East-West dialogue, children’s literature, criticism, and the fantastical.
In addition to the scholarship stipend, Lancaster Scholars receive a certificate hand-printed by Paul Holbrook of the M. I. King Press (and member of the Warwick Foundation), and the year-long use of Clay Lancaster’s reference library and the facilities at Warwick estate for retreat and thesis writing.
Warwick is a unique compound of historic and architecturally important structures, and over 200 acres of unspoiled nature preserve in Salvisa, Kentucky. The Warwick Foundation maintains the property to perpetuate and promote the legacy of Clay Lancaster through education, preservation, and facilitation of cross-cultural understanding. Each fall, Paul Holbrook hosts the Gaines Fellows for a tour of Warwick and vegetarian lunch or tea-time snack, in keeping with Clay Lancaster’s own practice.
