Launched in 2009, the MAD Travel Fellowship sponsors five architecture students from mainland China to travel overseas and conduct research in a location of their choosing

Created by the founder of MAD, Ma Yansong, in 2009, the programme has been sponsoring students to study abroad for seven years. Since its inception, 35 students have travelled abroad to conduct research on their chosen architecture topic. The team at MAD said that they want to offer this programme so that students can passionately engage in individual topics and understand architecture in its full context through travelling to specific sites.

The 2015 fellowship recipients travelled to Japan, Italy and USA to complete their research. Upon return, the students presented the findings from their research to an audience at MAD’s Beijing office which included students, local media and MAD staff. MAD Travel Fellowship founder Ma Yansong, along with architecture critic Bao Pao, and MAD principal partner Yosuke Hayano joined the presentation event.

For the first time in its fellowship history, the 2015 MAD Travel Fellowship additionally assisted students in the coordination of appointments with a master architect that they wished to meet. Students were able to comprehensively study their research topic during their travels, with masters such as Robert Stern and Kojima Kazuhiro.
