In 2000, the Urban Design Research Institute initiated the annual Charles Correa Gold Medal for the best design dissertation from Schools of Architecture in Mumbai and selected schools outside the city. The medal is an appreciation of quality and talent among young students of architecture, and encourages a focus on the urban context.
Schools who want to take part should express interest by writing to UDRI. Schools should offer full time B.Arch. courses for Architecture and must be approved by the Council of Architecture. Each school can nominate only one entry, which is required to be an architectural project set in an urban context.
