The 2012 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship is now open to applications from students at RIBA-accredited 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 Angela Brady, 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.'
The deadline for entry is Monday 26 March 2012. Further details and an application form can be downloaded from the RIBA website www.architecture.com/fosterscholarship.
