Architecture students from validated schools around the world may now submit applications for the 2014 RIBA Norman Foster Traveling Scholarship competition.
The RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, generously supported by Lord Foster and Foster + Partners, offers one traveling scholarship of £6,000 to a student of architecture to support international research on a topic and at locations of the student’s choosing.
The Scholarship has been running since 2007 and so far has supported seven (7) students.
The topic of the research should relate to the survival of our cities and towns and fall under one of the following themes:
- learning from the past to inform the future
- the future of society
- density of settlements
- use of resources
- quality of urban life
The travel should take place between June-October 2014.
Upon the completion of the travel the student will be invited to present their research to an audience at Foster + Partners in London. A graphic, photographic or written interpretation of their report will also be displayed during the RIBA President’s Medals Student Award exhibition at the RIBA in London in December 2014.
