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: RAMSA’s 2020 fellowship deadlines will remain the same—proposals are due March 23 and the winner will be announced April 6. Hard copies of applications are no longer required. Issues related to COVID-19 will not impact the jury’s proposal selection, but summer travel may be postponed to accommodate restrictions. In the event that safe travel to the proposed location is not feasible in 2020, RAMSA will work with the fellow to determine an alternate proposal. Email email@example.com if you have any questions.
