The Parker Fellowship

The Parker Fellowship is awarded annually to an architecture student to undertake a personally significant program of international travel and experience global architecture.

The Parker Fellowship was established in memory of the late Emeritus Professor Eric Parker from the School of Architecture and Built Environment. The fellowship encourages students to look outwards, just as Professor Parker encouraged his Architecture students to do in class.

The scholarship is awarded to the student who shows the greatest potential to benefit from a program of travel to personally encounter some of the great structures around the globe. It is a unique opportunity to engage with and be influenced by the world’s most significant architecture.
