About the Programme
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has opened applications for the 2021 Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship. The scholarship seeks to reward one architecture student and fund their travel to explore the sustainable survival of cities and towns. This year, in response to global travel restrictions, students can alternatively submit a proposal to research a topic in their home country. Applications are welcomed from students around the world and a 7,000 GBP grant will be awarded to the winner, decided by a panel of judges that includes Lord Foster and RIBA President Alan Jones.
Applications are open to students who are enrolled in, or have successfully completed, the first year of a professional qualification in architecture at one of the higher education institutions invited to participate.
The Norman Foster Foundation promotes interdisciplinary thinking and research to help new generations of architects, designers and urbanists anticipate the future. We believe in the importance of connecting architecture, design, technology and the arts to better serve society, and in the value of a holistic education that encourages experimentation through research and projects. The Norman Foster Foundation holds the Norman Foster Archive and Library, which provide a window into the larger narrative and history of our built environment through the work of Norman Foster. The Norman Foster Foundation is based in Madrid and operates globally.
