The RAMSA Travel Fellowship is a $10,000 prize awarded annually by Robert A.M. Stern Architects for travel and research. The fellowship seeks to promote investigations into the perpetuation of tradition through invention—key to the firm’s own work—and is given to an individual who has proven insight and interest in the profession and its future, as well as the ability to carry forth in-depth research.
The fellows complete their travel in the summer following the announcement of the award and present their research to RAMSA’s office in New York City in the spring. Tradition and Invention: RAMSA Travel Fellowship 2013–17, a book documenting the first five years of the fellowship, will be available for purchase in fall 2019.
UPDATE RE 2020 RAMSA Travel Fellowship: Congratulations to Yaxuan Liu, recipient of the 2020 RAMSA Travel Fellowship! Yaxuan, a Master of Architecture candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, will be awarded $10,000 to travel along the west coast of Taiwan and document the historic Qilou building type. This year the jury recognizes that summer travel may be postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions; if safe travel to the proposed location is not feasible in 2020, RAMSA will work with Yaxuan to determine an alternate proposal.
