2017 Morrison Scholarships for Architecture
DIT Foundation and the Dublin School of Architecture at DIT are calling for applications for the 2017 Morrison Scholarship for Architecture.
Now in its 4th year the Sir Richard Morrison Scholarship is an annual competition which supports a student in each of the five years in Architecture and each of the 4 years of the Architectural Technology at DIT.
The scholarships will be awarded to students of proven engagement and academic excellence within the current academic year. Each scholarship is worth €3,000 and will be awarded at the end of year show in June.
The Sir Richard Morrison Scholarship Scheme was established by Lieutenant Colonel Charles Colquhoun Morrison who bequeath a sum of money ‘to provide scholarships for students of Architecture’ in memory of his relation, Sir Richard Morrison. Sir Richard Morrison was born in Cork in 1767 and was a pupil of James Gandon. He was a founder-member in 1839 of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland and its first vice-president. His most notable works, many carried out in association with his son, the architect William Vitruvius Morrison, include Killruddery House in Co. Wicklow and Ballyfin House in County Laois.
