2012 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship with £6000 grant is now open for entries

The 2012 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship is now open to applications from students at RIBA-accredited schools of architecture around the world.

A £6,000 grant will be awarded to one student by a panel of judges which includes Lord Norman Foster and president of the RIBA Angela Brady. 

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.”

The deadline for entry is Monday 26 March 2012.

Further details and an application form can be downloaded from the RIBA website.
