What is the Honan International Travel prize ?

Captain Honan (Matthew Honan) was born in Liverpool in 1878, studied architecture in Liverpool and practiced as an Architect in Liverpool. He designed a number of Catholic churches in the North West before the first world war, and during the first world war he was killed in action in 1916 at the battle of the Somme aged 38.

In his will he gifted parts of his estate towards the completion of the St Matthews Church, Clubmoor, Liverpool and as a memorial scholarship the setting up of the Honan Prize of which the Liverpool Architects society host every year as the Honan Travel Scholarship. 

Each year the Liverpool Architectural Society invites students of architecture in Liverpool to submit proposals for a study based trip. A scholarship is presented to the student or students whose proposal demonstrates the most appropriate and worthwhile use in the opinion of the LAS. We also ask that the student awarded the prize presents a talk on their visit to the LAS and fellow students following the trip.
