RIBA announces Lord Norman Foster scholarship
Jan 30, 2017

The RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship 2017 is now accepting submissions from architecture schools around the world, seeking one applicant from each school. The winning student will receive approximately $8,400 for use to travel anywhere in the world to “pursue research on the subject of the future survival of our cities and communities.”


Last year's winner, Abel Feleke from the University of Western Australia

“This scholarship provides a unique opportunity for students to engage with architecture outside of the academic context, and develop their own research interests and methods as part of a rewarding and enlightening experience,” says Jane Duncan, president of the Royal Institute of British Architects. “As we celebrate this scheme’s 10th anniversary, we remain deeply grateful to Lord Foster for his support of the future generation of architects, and are delighted with his generous decision to increase the funds awarded to this year’s recipient.” 

“As a student, I won a prize that allowed me to spend a summer travelling through Europe and to study firsthand buildings and cities that I knew only from the pages of books,” says Norman Foster. “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.”
