RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship

Students from all RIBA-validated schools worldwide are invited to apply for a £6,000 scholarship, which funds international research on topics and in locations of the student’s choosing. The topic of the research should, however, relate to the survival of our cities and towns. 

Each school with RIBA-validated degree courses is invited to submit one application for the scholarship. Each school chooses its own method of selecting its student.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 26 March.

Further information about how to apply and the eligibility criteria is included in the application form below.

About the scholarship

The jury for the 2011 scholarship included Lord Foster RIBA President, Ruth Reed; Rowan Moore, writer and critic; Spencer de Grey, Head of Design at Foster + Partners; Stephen Hodder, Chairman of Hodder + Partners; and Roger Ridsdill Smith, a senior partner at Foster + Partners.

The RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship has been running since 2007. The spirit of the scholarship is based on Lord Foster’s own experience as a student of architecture:

‘As a student I won a prize that allowed me to spend a summer travelling through Europe 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.’
