|Subject||Insignia, emblems ; Metalwork ; Sculpture|
NOTES: The Commissioners for the Exhibition of 1851 ran a competition for a Rome Scholarship in Architecture for three years study at the British School in Rome. In 1913 the RIBA joined with the Commissioners to run the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship, worth -ú200 and two years at the British School in Rome. The same conditions applied for both awards and was judged by the Faculty of Architecture of the British School in Rome. The first prize winner would be awarded the Rome Scholarship in Architecture and the runner-up the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship. Although a medal was proposed as early as 1934, a list of recipients was not compiled until 1936. It was to be rewarded retrospectively and the RIBA had determined that the medal would be given to recipients of the Henry Jarvis Travelling Studentship as well as recipients of the Rome Scholarship in Architecture. Marshall Arnott Sisson, to whom the medal pictured here was presented, was awarded the Henry Jarvis Travelling Scholarship in 1924.
