Third RIBA Norman Foster travelling scholarship announced

RIBA has announced the third winner of the institute’s Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship

Amanda Rivera of the Universidad del Bio Bio, Chile has been awarded the RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship for her entry entitled, ‘Ancestral Cities, Ancestral Sustainability’.

The proposal is to conduct a two and a half month research trip through Bolivia, Peru, Mali, Turkey, Iran, Indonesia and China, focusing on living examples of indigenous cultures in the developing world, examining vernacular traditions and the residents’ efficient use of natural resources.

The annual scheme is open to more than 100 RIBA-accredited schools worldwide, and entries were received from 9 different countries. The jury, which comprised Norman Foster, Sunand Prasad, president of the RIBA, Richard Cork, Farshid Moussavi of Foreign Office Architects and Mouzhan Majidi, chief executive of Foster + Partners, were unanimous in their decision.

  • Would anyone happen to know if Wits University, Johannesburg, South Africa is one of the 100 RIBA accredited schools? Also, are there any other scholarships out there for an undergraduate student. How does one apply?
