Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship 2021 - Call for Applications

Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship 2021: Call for Applications

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has opened applications for the 2021 Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship. The scholarship seeks to reward one architecture student and fund their travel to explore the sustainable survival of cities and towns.

This year, in response to global travel restrictions, students can alternatively submit a proposal to research a topic in their home country. Applications are welcomed from students around the world and a £7,000 grant will be awarded to the winner, decided by a panel of judges including Lord Foster and RIBA President Alan Jones.

"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," commented Lord Foster "It was a revelation - liberating and exhilarating in so many ways. Today it is the privilege of the Norman Foster Foundation to support 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."

Applications are open to students who are enrolled in, or have successfully completed, the first year of a professional qualification in architecture, in one of the higher education institutions invited to participate.

The deadline for submissions May 28, 2021.
