Offered through the generosity of Norman and Elena Foster, this professorship enables the Yale School of Architecture (New Haven, USA) to invite every year distinguished international architects to teach in the design studio.
The Norman Foster Foundation provides workshop scholarships to students from all over the world. The scholarship invites the selected students to the Madrid Headquarters of the Norman Foster Foundation to engage with a group of specialists through a series of seminars and lectures culminating in a workshop exploring a certain subject.
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.
The Norman Foster Foundation, London—a charitable entity established in London in 1999—will continue to provide, among other donations, travelling fellowships through London’s Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). The fellowship encourages architecture students and scholars to travel anywhere in the world to pursue research on the subject of the future survival of cities and communities.
