RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship 2017

The RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship 2017 has been launched inviting applications from schools of architecture around the world directly by the RIBA to put forward one applicant each. Entries will be assessed by a panel of judges which will include Lord Foster and RIBA President Jane Duncan.

The selected scholar will receive £7,000 (an increase from the previous award of £6,000) to travel anywhere the world in order to pursue research on the subject of the future survival of our cities and communities.

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:
“This scholarship provides a unique opportunity for students to engage with architecture outside of the academic context, and develop their own research interests and methods as part of a rewarding and enlightening experience. As we celebrate this scheme’s 10th anniversary, we remain deeply grateful to Lord Foster for his support of the future generation of architects, and are delighted with his generous decision to increase the funds awarded to scholars as of this year.”
