Now in its 2nd year, the Sir Richard Morrison Scholarship is an annual competition which supports a student in each of the five years in the Bachelor of Architecture honours degree programme and each of the 4 years of the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Technology honours degree programme at DIT. The scholarships will be awarded to students of proven engagement and academic excellence within the current academic year. Each scholarship is worth €3,000.
The Sir Richard Morrison Scholarship Scheme was established by Lieutenant Colonel Charles Colquhoun Morrison who bequeathed a sum of money ‘to provide scholarships for students of Architecture’ in memory of his relation, Sir Richard Morrison. Sir Richard Morrison was born in Cork in 1767 and was a pupil of James Gandon. He was a founder-member in 1839 of the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland and was its first Vice-President. His most notable works, many of which were carried out in association with his architect son William Vitruvius Morrison, include Killruddery House in Co. Wicklow and Ballyfin House in County Laois.
