MAD Architects Travel Fellowship

This program provides design students an opportunity to travel to China for a sponsored research-based trip, an intimate exploration of MAD’s iconic projects, and a chance to meet and speak with our founding principal partner Ma Yansong.

This year, MAD Travel Fellowship will be open to all international students. We are hoping for your school’s support in spreading the news for this unique educational program. Whether this information can be spread via your newsletter, website, and/or local bulletin board, we hope to extend to every interested design student the opportunity to experience a hands-on, individualized study abroad experience.

Below are links to our travel fellowship from previous years:
