RIBA opens 2019 Norman Foster Foundation Travelling Scholarship
March 7, 2019
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has today opened applications for the 2019 Norman Foster Foundation Travelling Scholarship.
This 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.
Applications are welcomed from students enrolled in schools of architecture around the world. A £7,000 grant will be awarded to one winner, which will be decided by a panel of judges including Lord Foster and RIBA President Ben Derbyshire.
Lord Foster said: “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. Today it is the privilege of the Norman Foster Foundation to support the RIBA Norman Foster Foundation 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 17:00 Friday 26 April 2019. Further details can be downloaded here: www.architecture.com/
