The Rotch Travelling Scholarship is an annual two-stage design competition that results in one person, deemed the Rotch Scholar, traveling the world for at least six months studying architecture.
In the first stage of the selection process, a weekend-long preliminary design competition is held. Finalists from this competition go on to compete in the second stage, a 10-day competition culminating in a design presentation to a distinguished jury.
The 2022 Rotch Travelling Scholar is William Smith, who will receive a $40,000 stipend to spend at least six months researching and travelling to study architecture.
The 2022 Rotch Finalists include:
William Smith (winner)
Ian Miley (runner-up)
