This biennial Award is awarded to young people under the age of 30 who wish to undertake a short period of study on a particular aspect of spatial planning.
It is open to candidates living in the UK who wish to visit another country and to overseas candidates wishing to spent some time in the UK.
Candidates have to provide a statement describing the nature of the study that they wish to undertake together with an itinerary.
The Institute will nominate three judges and the successful candidate will be awarded £1,500 which will be paid in two instalments, two-thirds being paid before the visit and the balance after the visit and on submission of a report.
The award is not confined to members or students of the RTPI.
However, it is not meant to provide finance for postgraduate studies or those working for a doctorate.
The judges will need to know;
That the project has been properly thought through;
That the programme of work can be properly carried out in the time proposed and with the funding available;
That the itinerary is practicable and will allow the work to be carried out efficiently
That the itinerary is relevant to planning practice or research in this country or elsewhere.
