Chinese Architect Ma Yangsong initiated MAD Travel Fellowship in 2009. During the past 7 editions the program has sponsored 35 students for their overseas travels. All students traveled with individually-determined research topics and presented their studies upon their returns. Starting in 2017, the program was updated to have further international reach. The MAD Travel Fellowship now annually sponsors 5 overseas students for trips to China, and 5 Chinese students for overseas travel. For students wishing to meet with architects they find valuable to their research topics, MAD will help to request and arrange meetings.

Since 2009 MAD Architects organized the Travel Fellowship to support talented Chinese students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to travel abroad. This year, we received hundreds of applications from undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students from cities and towns across China. Each of this year’s recipients showed an intuitive understanding of the meaning of travel: that first-hand experience of a place is essential to comprehending its full significance.

To date, 20 students have traveled to countries including Greece, Egypt, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, Germany and the United States. This summer 5 more will have this invaluable opportunity, and we look forward to their reports upon their return.

This year’s recipients are as follows:
