Scholars’ Prize in Architecture

The Scholars’ Prize in Architecture is an exciting and valuable opportunity for an early-career architect or post-Part II student of architecture to spend three months in Rome (living at the BSR), and be a member of a vibrant residential community of architects, artists and researchers. It enables somebody to pursue and complete a creative, intellectually coherent and focused architectural project in and based on the city of Rome or its environs. It offers accommodation in a study-bedroom and board, for three months, a monthly stipend, a group exhibition, and participation in a range of interdisciplinary activities.

The Scholars’ Prize in Architecture has been made possible by donations from a number of former BSR award-holders and others, who will be actively involved in the shortlisting. Final selection at the interview will be by members of the Faculty of the Fine Arts of the BSR.
