2011 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship - Call for Entries

2011 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship: Call for Entries

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is calling for entries for the 2011 RIBA Norman Foster Scholarship in partnership with Foster + Partners.

The scholarship offers a grant of £6,000 to one student of architecture to fund international travel and research on the topic and in the locations of the scholar's choosing.

Past RIBA Norman Foster Scholars travelled through the Americas, Europe, Africa, South East Asia, the Middle and the Far East, and Russia researching topics relating to the survival of cities and towns.

Students from 110 RIBA-accredited schools of architecture in the UK and abroad are invited to submit their proposals for research, which might include: learning from the past to inform the future; the future of society; the density of settlements; sustainability; the use of resources; the quality of urban life; and transport.

"We are delighted to invite applications for the 2011 RIBA Norman Foster Scholarship. This very worthwhile programme provides students with not only invaluable travel experience but also the opportunity to exhibit their research in a significant exhibition at the RIBA," said Ruth Reed, RIBA President.

"My fellow judges and I look forward to selecting a winner and seeing the report of their inspirational travels."

The deadline for submitting completed applications is March 1, 2011.
