RIBA Norman Foster Scholarship
"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 the privilege of the Norman Foster Foundation to support 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 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship offers £7,000 to a student of architecture who demonstrates the potential for outstanding achievement and original thinking on issues that relate to the sustainable survival of cities and towns.
To be eligible, students must be enrolled in, and have successfully completed the first year of, a professional qualification in architecture in one of the schools of architecture invited to participate. The full list of invited schools for 2019 is available to view here.
Each school can nominate one student only and must choose its own method of selecting its nominated student.
To apply, nominated students must complete an application form and the requested supporting material. Full details of these specifications and the application process are available in the application form.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 26 April 2019.
The judging process will take place during May.
Completed applications should be emailed directly to Foster + Partners: email@example.com.
