2016 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship Call for Entries
The 2016 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship has launched and is inviting applications from schools of architecture around the world. A £6,000 grant will be awarded to one student by a panel of judges which includes Lord Foster and the President of the RIBA.
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 my privilege to fund 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.”
RIBA President Jane Duncan said:
“Generously supported by Lord Foster, this scholarship provides a chance for students to engage with architecture, outside of the academic context, in what will no doubt be a rewarding and enlightening experience. I would strongly encourage all students of architecture to apply for this exciting opportunity.”
The deadline for submissions is 22 April 2016. Further details and an application from can be downloaded from the RIBA website www.architecture.com/
