Eight Sydney architecture students have been awarded the annual Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship that will support their travel to the 13th Venice International Architecture Biennale, running from 29 August until 25 November 2012.


The architecture students awarded the 2012 Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship are: Harry Catterns; HY William Chan; Jonathan Combley; Michael Ford; Tracey Hau; Linda Matthews; Jennifer Mc Master; and Joanne Taylor.


The students each receive a scholarship valued at $5,000 to support their course of study, research, or other activity that allows: “the promotion and encouragement of education of students of and/or graduates in architecture.” The scholarship must involve travel either within Australia or overseas.


This year, all scholarship recipients will travel to Venice for a period of one to two weeks during the Architecture Biennale, which is recognized as one of the world’s most important events on the global contemporary architecture calendar.
