Awarded annually, the SOM Foundation China Fellowship is a travel fellowship open to students in architecture and urban design. Each of three winners will receive $5,000 to pursue original travel research. The prize allows emerging design leaders to broaden their education through travel so that they may gain a deeper understanding of how their work will contribute to the built and natural environments.
Undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing degrees in China are eligible for the prize; Chinese citizenship is not required. Students must be in their last two years of a degree program in architecture or urban design. The application requirements consist of a portfolio, a research proposal, and a travel itinerary. A jury of leading architects and design professionals in China will select the winners.
