The China Prize, a $10,000 (USD) traveling fellowship, helps Chinese architects broaden their education and gain an understanding of society’s need to improve the built and natural environments. Similar study grants awarded in the United States by the SOM Foundation are now an important measure of design achievement among architecture students and their sponsors. These awards also recognize the excellence of the schools themselves in training the leading architects of the next generation.
