One Travel Scholarship winner, Sam Little who studied at the Architectural Association and travelled to Iran for his Travel Scholarship research, said: “The Scholarship was fantastic in giving me the impetus to fulfil a project which otherwise would have been left in the locker. It gave me the will and economic means to pursue a trip to Iran to look at 11th century Seljuq buildings. It was a trip which simply would not have been possible without the agency which the scholarship gave me. The whole process was thoroughly enriching and being encouraged to work with freedom helped to place an emphasis on the experience of the trip, rather than any rigid preconceived understanding of the subject. I would encourage anyone thinking about applying to do so.”

Speaking about the Scholarship, ADAM Architecture Director Robbie Kerr, a former Travel Scholarship winner himself, commented: “This is a great opportunity for a student or recent graduate to travel abroad to engage in international research in architecture or urban design. It has a proven track record of supporting students to pursue a particular interest, and in many cases their research has had a major influence on their career choices.”
