The Lyceum Fellowship was established in 1985 by Jon D. McKee, AIA (1927-2013). Through its annual design competition, the Lyceum seeks to advance the profession of architecture by engaging students in design and travel during their educational years. The American Institute of Architects has recognized the Lyceum nationally for the effective pursuit of this mission with the prestigious AIA Collaborative Achievement Award. For more than 3 0 years, the Lyceum has engaged highly noted architects from all areas of the field to develop programs for the annual competition. The Lyceum has awarded nearly half a million dollars in travel prizes to date, enriching the education of highly talented students through travel to 58 different countries.
