UFBA-FBUA Bursary 2016

ufba-fbua_bursary-2016

The UFBA-FBUA Bursary allows young architects or students of architecture in either country to extend their understanding of some aspect of architecture in the other country and alternates between the two countries in successive years. For 2016, one bursary of up to £1,500 will be awarded to a suitable British candidate.

Visit the bursary page for more information and details in how to apply.

2015 Bursary

The 2015 Student Bursary has been awarded by the French Section to Thibaut Dini whose subject is ‘Re-use of Olympic Games sites’.

New Bursary Fund:
Member David Lloyd Davis and his family are setting up a new bursary fund in memory of his wife Elaine. This will be separate from the existing student bursary fund and will concentrate on encouraging hand drawing skills in young architects. A full announcement will be made in due course.

2014 Student Bursary awarded

We thank all the applicants for this year’s Student Bursary where there were some interesting topics. This year’s Bursaries have been awarded to Nicholas Harrington and Anna Raymond.

Nick, who is studying at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow, will be exploring the friendship of Fernand Léger and Le Corbusier and the relationship between painting and architecture.

Anna, who is also studying in Glasgow, will be looking at innovative approaches to inclusive design, studying the design of access to cultural venues in Paris and Nantes.


March 2015 update:

We are now hoping that they will each make their presentations either at the Nantes Re-Union or the Joint Committee in Paris.

Money for the bursaries (£1500 each) comes principally from the interest from our specifically saved funds. In addition, this year we are very fortunate to have received an additional donation of £500 from Charles MacCallum’s family in memory of Charlie.
