The Daniel Rosenberg Fellowship was established in 1989 by Irwin and Civia Rosenberg in memory of their son Dan, who completed his B.F.A. degree in the Department of Photography in 1988. Each year since its inception, the fellowship enables one graduating senior to pursue a project involving travel.
