CTBUH Funding and Competitions


CTBUH offers annual funding and prizes for professionals and students to engage in design and research projects.



International Research Seed Funding

The Research Seed Funding assists talented researchers in developing projects/ideas to a level that would secure additional, more significant, funding–in conjunction with the CTBUH. Proposals should relate to the tall building typology / urban habitat, but is open to any topic/discipline.

International Student Design Competition

The Student Design Competition, open to students currently enrolled at the university level, is to shed new light on the meaning and value of tall buildings in modern society. Participants should engage with the exploration and resolution of the relationship between a tall building and its urban setting.
