2020 Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship

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.

To be eligible, students must be enrolled in, and have successfully completed the first year of, a professional qualification in architecture in one of the schools of architecture invited to participate. The full list of invited schools for 2020 is available to view.

Each school can nominate one student only and must choose its own method of selecting its nominated student.

To apply, nominated students must complete an application form and the requested supporting material. Full details of these specifications and the application process are available in the application form.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 24 April 2020.

The students can sent by email: direzione.sad@unicam.it four days before the deadline :

  • one completed application
  • one A1 ‘poster’ presented as a pdf file detailing the proposal (topic, objective, locations). Applicants are restricted to 500 words on the poster submission, and images should be high-resolution

The School can nominate one student only

We would therefore like to advise all applicants to this scholarship to be flexible with their proposed travel projects and be aware that the intended travel period of July-October 2020 will likely be postponed.  Applicants should continue to plan for a period of travel lasting up to 4 months, and travel dates will be agreed at a later stage when we are in a safe position to do so.
