Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship at The Bartlett School of Architecture
The Norman Foster Foundation works with the school to select recipients for the scholarship. The Foundation funds the full academic fees of one student per year to ensure that the most promising candidates in Europe, regardless of means, have the opportunity to undertake the Bartlett School’s BSc Architecture Course. The first student began academic year 2017/2018.
Grace Baker, Loughborough University. Winner of the second Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College, London.
Grace Baker impressed the jury with her sense of creative enquiry. This is the second year that the Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship has been awarded and the jury’s overall impression is that the initiative is going from strength to strength.
Alice Shanahan, Ripon Grammar School, UK. Winner of the first Norman Foster Foundation Scholarship at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College, London.
The jury agreed that Alice Shanahan’s work was the most accomplished and sophisticated of all the candidates. Shanahan’s work lays as much emphasis on the process of making and drawing as it does on the final product. She has shown herself to be a genuine, mature student who thinks like an architect; she has a delightful and perceptive spatial sense, but also has a good idea of how a scholarly approach could be beneficial for her future life and career.
