The Stuart Murphy Award
The WCCA Travel Award has been offered annually since 2008 by the Worshipful Company of Chartered Architects with the support of the Royal Institute of British Architects. The Award provides an international travel grant to a student or a group of students enrolled in a RIBA-validated Part 2 course in a School of Architecture in the Greater London area. The objective of the Award is to allow a student or a group of students to conduct research on the topic and in the location of their choice. It is hoped that the research will enrich the Award holder’s studies in the field of Architecture contributing to the development of their course work as well as to the advancement of architectural knowledge.
One or more awards of up to a total of £2,000 are made to a student or a group of students.
The travel, which must take place outside the UK, will be concluded in no longer than 2 months and will take place during the summer holidays following completion of the first year of a Part 2 course and prior to enrolling in the second year of the course.
The successful applicant/s will be asked to produce a report of the project; this can be but does not have to be part of a dissertation. Awardees will be asked to produce one bound copy of the final report which will be kept in the RIBA British Architectural Library.
Applicants must be enrolled in the first year of a RIBA-validated Part 2 course in a School of Architecture in the Greater London area.
The eligible Schools are: Architectural Association, Kingston University, London Metropolitan University, London South Bank University, Royal College of Art, University College London, University of East London, University of Greenwich and University of Westminster.
