ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship open for entries

ADAM Architecture is inviting students to apply for its annual Travel Scholarship. The closing date is 30th April 2019. The £2,000 award supports overseas research in architecture, architectural technology and urban design.

Judges will be looking for a significant piece of original research work which can provide an outstanding contribution to architectural knowledge. Applicants from all stylistic backgrounds are encouraged to enter, and offer a fresh perspective on contemporary architecture, to traditional and everything in between.

The 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.

First launched in 2005, the ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship 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.Previous winners have travelled to Valletta, Japan, Cuba, France, Belgium, Sicily, Rome, Iran and Ethiopia.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 a Diploma in Architecture (RIBA Part 2) 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.”

The judging panel will include the Directors at ADAM Architecture, plus others invited external judges from business or academia.

Speaking about the Scholarship, ADAM Architecture Director Robbie Kerr, a former Travel Scholarship winner himself, commented, “This is a great opportunity for a student or recent graduate to travel abroad to engage in international research in architecture or urban design. It has a proven track record of supporting students to pursue a particular interest, and in many cases their research has had a major influence on their career choices.”

The closing date for entries is 30th April 2019.
