RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship

RIBA Travelling scholarships: International travel and research opportunities, for architecture students and graduates.

"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." Lord Norman Foster

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.

In 2021, in response to the global restrictions on travel put in place to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, applications has been accepted for national research proposals as well as international research proposals. Therefore, students have submitted a proposal for research on a topic in their home country or at (an) international location(s).
