    Eligibility Dr. William Alexander Allen CBE, known throughout the architectural world as Bill, received an Isbister Scholarship as a student at the University of Manitoba. On graduation in 1936, he was awarded the University’s Gold Medal in Architecture. Bill was appointed Deputy Head of the Physics Division and later Chief Architect and Head of Design Research for the UK Governments' Building Research Station (now Establishment) in 1945. In 1946 he was jointly responsible for initiating the British Acoustical Society, later to become the Institute of Acoustics, and in 1949 he led the BRE group consulting for the acoustical design of the Royal Festival Hall.
    In 1954 he was elected to the Council of the Royal Institute of British Architects on which he served with one short gap until 1988. In 1961 he was invited to become Principal of the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. Concurrently he joined forces with a friend to set up an architectural practice, Bickerdike Allen Partners, eventually practising widely as architects and consultants in the technologies of architecture. In 1962 he received the University of Manitoba Alumni Jubilee award and in 1977 an Honorary Doctorate of laws. The New Zealand Institute of Architects made him an Honorary Associate in 1965 and the American Institute of Architects followed with Honorary Fellowship in 1983. He became a Commander in the Order of Merit of Portugal in 1972, and in 1980 Commander in the Order of the British Empire. He published numerous papers on architecture and building technology, and in 1997 published Envelope Design for Buildings. Family and friends of Bill Allen have established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba in his honour. This fund has been established with two objectives in mind:
  • to provide students of Architecture at the University of Manitoba with the freedom to explore architecture or architectural practice anywhere in the world; and
  • to provide recognition and support to exceptional graduate students in the Department of Architecture at the University of Manitoba who are conducting research into areas of lighting, acoustics, or the causes of building defects and what can be done to avoid such defects.

  • is enrolled full-time in the graduate program in the Department of Architecture at the University;
  • has completed one graduate studio and at least 6 credit hours of 700 level core courses with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5;

The application shall include a portfolio of the applicant’s work, a 1,000 word proposal stating the theme and the scope of the proposed research topic, a time-line of how the study will proceed and two letters of reference, one an academic reference and the second a character reference (cannot be submitted by a family member). This scholarship will provide support for, among other things, travel and accommodation expenses involved in the research which the recipient undertakes. Travel must commence within 10 months of receipt of the award.
    Research Scholarship The research conducted shall be related to environmental controls: lighting, acoustics, integrated building systems, or the causes of building defects and measures which can be used to avoid them. In order to compete for the research scholarship, eligible students will be required to submit a multi-part application.
