The Annual International Berkeley Undergraduate Prize for Architectural Design Excellence 2023
Berkeley Prize 2023

The 2023 Travel Fellowship Competition

This opportunity is open to each student who placed as a semifinalist in the 2023 BERKELEY PRIZE Essay Competition.



All Semifinalists are invited to submit proposals individually, demonstrating how they would use the opportunity to travel to an architecturally-significant destination, preferably to participate in a hands-on, service-oriented situation. This is an exciting opportunity to explore a different part of the world and to participate in an organized project that will assist the winner(s) in gaining a deeper understanding of the social art of architecture.

Travel Fellowship candidates are asked to submit a proposal for a directed plan of travel and study away from their academic institution during their Summer break for 2023. Specific requirements are included on the To Enter page.

The Travel Fellowship provides a fixed stipend adequate to pay for a round-trip airfare from the city in which the student is studying to the destination and back. It also covers lodging, food, and incidentals during the stay, normally enough for three weeks. Any required program costs are normally treated as part of the overall stipend.

The winning student(s) will be asked to write a report on their travels that will be posted on the Berkeley Prize website. Students are also asked to keep a photo diary of their time spent traveling, portions of which will also be posted on the website.

Read the archives of previous years for successful Proposals and Travel Reports.
