The first ever Scholarship acceptance letter from David Nye to the Secretary of the SPAB, AR Powys sent on 19 April, 1930. The SPAB’s co-founder, Philip Webb, advocated practical training for young architects, encouraging them to work alongside SPAB architects and craftspeople on repair projects to develop their knowledge and skills. In 1930 the Committee decided to offer a Scholarship of £60 to support a newly-qualified architect to train with the Society and David Nye was selected. The SPAB continues to offer this unique training opportunity to building professionals annually. Learn more about the Scholarship and how you can support it.
