Students from all RIBA or CAA validated degree programmes from Schools of Architecture worldwide are invited to apply for this £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 and fall under one of the following themes:

  • learning from the past to inform the future
  • the future of society
  • density of settlements
  • sustainability
  • use of resources
  • quality of urban life
  • transport

Each school with RIBA or CAA validated degree courses is invited to submit one application for the scholarship from one of its students. Each school chooses its own method of selecting its student but the completed application form must be signed by the Head of School.

The travel should take place between June-October 2013.

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 2013.
