ADAM Architecture Travel Scholarship open for entries

ADAM Archietcture Travel Scholarship 2019

Once again Adam Architecture has launched their annual Travel Scholarship of £2,000 to students wishing to conduct research overseas. The closing date for applications is 30th April 2019.

Initiated in 2005, the travel bursary supports overseas research in architecture, architectural technology and urban design. The bursary has a proven success rate with many recipients being invited to present their work at events hosted by ADAM Architecture. Previous Winners have travelled to the likes of Iran, Rome, France, Japan and Valletta.


The scholarships calls for applications from UK or International University students or School of Architecture students. They should be studying RIBA Part I and up to 3 years after Part II qualification, studying a CIAT accredited degree or post-graduate course, or equivalent qualification.

Talking about his experience, previous Travel Scholarship winner, Sam Little currently studying 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.”


Judges are looking for a noteworthy piece of unique research, and an exceptional contribution to architectural knowledge.

The judging panel will include the Directors at ADAM Architecture, plus other external judges that have been invited 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.
