ADAM Architecture is inviting students to apply for the annual Travel Scholarship to support overseas research in architecture, architectural technology and urban design.
The closing date is 30th April 2020. The award of £2,000 supports overseas research in architecture, architectural technology and urban design.
Judges will be looking for a significant piece of original research work, and an outstanding contribution to architectural knowledge. The award is not focused on traditional architecture and the judges are stylistically neutral in their evaluation of the proposals.
The travel scholarship is open to students enrolled at a UK or International University or School of Architecture, studying RIBA Part I; applicants who are 3 years post their Part II qualification; to students studying a CIAT accredited degree, post-graduate course, or equivalent qualification.
First launched in 2005, the scholarship is now in its 15th year and has a proven track record of supporting students to travel overseas to further develop their current research interest or to kick-start something new, often outside of their studies. A brief summary of the previous winners is on ADAM Architecture website. Many past recipients have been invited to present their research at a public event hosted by ADAM Architecture.
Talking about his experience, previous Travel Scholarship winner, Sam Little who studied at the Architectural Association, said:
The Scholarship was fantastic in giving me the impetus to fulfil a project which otherwise would have been left in the locker. It gave me the will and economic means to pursue a trip to Iran to look at 11th century Seljuq buildings. It was a trip which simply would not have been possible without the agency which the scholarship gave me. The whole process was thoroughly enriching and being encouraged to work with freedom helped to place an emphasis on the experience of the trip, rather than any rigid preconceived understanding of the subject. I would encourage anyone thinking about applying to do so.
