The 2014 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship is now open for applications from architecture students at RIBA/CAA-validated schools around the world. A £6,000 grant will be awarded to one student to fund international research on a topic related to the survival of towns or cities.
"As a student I won a prize that allowed me to spend a summer travelling through Europe and to study first hand buildings and cities that I knew only from the pages of books," Lord Foster commented. "It was a revelation - liberating and exhilarating in so many ways. Today it is my privilege to fund the RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, which I hope will have a lasting legacy - offering the chance for discovery and the inspiration for exciting new work - for generations to come."
The deadline for submissions is April 25, 2014.
