2018 John Belle Travel Fellowship

2018 John Belle Travel Fellowship

The John Belle Travel Fellowship is a $10,000 annual award by the Beyer Blinder Belle Foundation in honor of John Belle, FAIA, RIBA, Hon. PhD, a founding partner of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners. John devoted his career to the public realm — the planning, design, restoration and adaptive reuse of public buildings and urban centers. The purpose of the Fellowship is to expand students’ understanding of the public realm in existing cities through travel and research, and how the knowledge gained might be applied to contemporary urban needs and design challenges.


Application is open to students of any nationality in their penultimate year of a master’s or PhD degree program in Architecture, Historic Preservation and/or Urban Design at the Welsh School of Architecture and a number of other architecture schools in the US, UK and Canada. For more information, please view the Fellowship Poster and the Fellowship announcement and requirements document.

An internal jury will select 2 proposals to be endorsed by the Welsh School of Architecture in January 2018. Please register your interest in submitting a proposal by emailing our Teaching Officer Lisa Watkins (WatkinsLJ3@cardiff.ac.uk). Through the registration you will receive further information, i.e. submission dates for the internal selection process.

The deadline to apply via return email is 12th January 2018.
