The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has launched a call for applications for the 2015 RIBA Boyd Auger Scholarship. The generous scholarship, which has been awarded since 2008, supports the personal, professional and academic development of its student recipients by contributing towards their "imaginative and original research and travel."

Boyd Auger achieved international fame in 1968 when he used computer programming to address a difficult housing problem in Italy. Even though the project was never built, Auger’s proposal was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London and his radically innovative methods (which maximised light, view and privacy in housing design) were featured in the BBC television programme ‘Cities of the Future’. In 1969 he won the Reynold Memorial Award by the American Institute of Architects for best use of aluminium in his Gyrotron project, a 200-foot space-frame structure built in 1967 for the Montreal Expo. His was the second ever British project to receive the Reynold Memorial award, following James Stirling and James Gowan in 1965 for their engineering block at Leicester University.

In 2015, one scholarship worth £5,000 is available to individuals or groups of students and graduates for a period of international travel. According to the RIBA, this can coincide with international work experience. Applications for funding international travel associated with architecture-related work in non-governmental organisations or as part of broader research at postgraduate level (such as towards Masters or PhD/MPhil programmes) are also welcome.

Applicants must:

  • be enrolled in a RIBA validated Part 1, 2 or 3 course or with candidate course status, in the UK or overseas or have been granted a place of study in a validated or candidate architecture course by the beginning of the period covered by the Bursary (Part 2 only)
  • or have graduated from a RIBA validated Part 1, 2 course or with candidate course status within the past 5 years

The deadline for applications is 1st June 2015. Find out more about the scholarship here.
