2015 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship call for entries
The 2015 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship has launched and is inviting applications from 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 the 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.”
RIBA President Stephen Hodder said:
“I urge our RIBA student members to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity provided by Lord Foster. The scholarship has been a vehicle for some remarkable pieces of work and I'm looking forward to reviewing the submissions.”
The deadline for submissions is Friday 24 April 2015. Further details and an application form can be downloaded from the RIBA website www.architecture.com/fosterscholarship.
