The 2011 RIBA Norman Foster Travelling Scholarship has been launched and is now inviting applications from RIBA-accredited schools
One student will receive a £6,000 grant with entries judged by a panel including Norman Foster and RIBA president-elect Angela Brady.
The grant is intended to fund international research on a topic related to the survival of our towns and cities, in a location of the student’s choice.
Proposals for research might include: learning from the past to inform the future; the future of society; the density of settlements; sustainability; the use of resources; the quality of urban life; and transport.
Foster said: ‘We were greatly impressed with the breadth and quality of last year’s entries, but the proposals that really stood out for the jury were focused, setting out clear aims and looking afresh at a current issue. I look forward to seeing the many creative ways in which students will develop their research proposals early next year.’
