The RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship, generously supported by Lord Foster and Foster + Partners, offers one travelling scholarship of £6,000 to a student of architecture to support international research on a topic and at locations of the student’s choosing.
The topic of the research should however, relate to the survival of our cities and towns and fall under one of the following themes:
1. learning from the past to inform the future
2. the future of society
3. density of settlements
5. use of resources
6. quality of urban life
The travel should take place between June-October 2015.
Upon the completion of the travel the student will be invited to present their research to an audience at Foster + Partners in London. A graphic, photographic or written interpretation of their report will also be displayed during the RIBA President’s Medals Student Award exhibition at the RIBA in London in December 2015.
1. must be enrolled in an RIBA or CAA validated degree programmes or in a programme from a specially invited school or architecture centre AND
2. must have successfully completed at least the first year of a Part 1 degree.
Each school only can submit one application produced by one student. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 24 April 2015.

Please note that applications will be judged anonymously and your name, your tutor's name and your School of Architecture should not be mentioned anywhere on your poster submission.
