The 2019 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) - Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship is now open for applications! Students from Architecture schools around the world can apply, from which one will be adjudged winner. This is the scholarship’s twelfth running year.
The scholarship was established in 2006 by RIBA and Foster+Partners, and has been continuing to fund international research topics on survival of towns and cities.
Past RIBA Norman Foster Scholars have travelled through the Americas, Europe, Africa, South East Asia, the Middle and the Far East, and Russia.
"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. It was a revelation - liberating and exhilarating in so many ways," Lord Foster commmented. "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." Proposals for research might include:
• learning from the past to inform the future;
• the future of society;
• the density of settlements;
• the use of resources;
• the quality of urban life;
A panel of judges, including Lord Foster and RIBA President Ben Derbyshire, will award a £7,000 grant to one winner. There is no entry fee to participate!
It's free to enter!
