ADAM Architecture present the award to support and reward outstanding research in architecture and urban design. This year, students from overseas as well as the UK are invited to apply for the travel scholarship.

Michael Hammond, Editorial Director at World Architecture News.com who will be joining the judging panel, said: “This is an excellent initiative and in addition to the obvious travel opportunity, the preparation involved will provide a good grounding for understanding and addressing briefs so vital for the ultimate challenge facing any architect, winning work. I’m delighted to be involved in the first year of the scheme’s wider, international scope which will add even more value for the winner.”
