About the RIBA Norman Foster Traveling 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.
In 2021, in response to the global restrictions on travel put in place to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, applications will be accepted for national research proposals as well as international research proposals.

Both national and international research proposals should relate to the sustainable survival of our cities and towns and fall under one of the following themes:
