NOTES: The Council of the RIBA had been given -ú1000 as a Memorial to Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. A Pugin Memorial Trust Committee was established to decide how to use the money and the proposal was for an annual travelling studentship to study the medieval architecture of Great Britain and Ireland. The competition was open to members of the profession from any country between the ages of 18 and 25. The successful candidate had to undertake a study tour in the United Kingdom lasting at least 8 weeks producing a report and sketches at the end. The candidate only received the money and the medal when he presented these to Council. This medal is the one awarded to John James Joass in 1893 for his study tour of north-east Scotland.
