Call for Applications- RIBA Part 2 Bursary: Closing 7 December

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is inviting applications for the Part 2 Bursary Scheme, with a deadline of 7 December.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) writes:

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is calling for applications for the RIBA Part 2 Bursary scheme.

In 2017, an additional £18,000 worth of funding is available, increasing the number of Part 2 Bursaries from five to eight – including the Rosenberg bursary, made possible by the generosity of the Rosenberg Memorial Fund.

The £6,000 bursaries aim to support eight Part 2 students for the academic years 2017/18 and 2018/19. Successful students will receive £1,000 a term throughout their Part 2 course (for up to a maximum of six terms).

This scheme supports architecture students looking to embark on an RIBA-validated Part 2 course within the UK. The bursaries aim to support students experiencing financial hardship who otherwise may not continue with their architectural studies. It is the most generous award made to architecture students in financial need.

RIBA President Jane Duncan said:  ‘It is crucial that financial barriers to the profession are dismantled to ensure that future practitioners are diverse, successful and inspired. I am delighted that the generous support of the profession has enabled us to extend this scheme, and therefore help more students than ever before to continue onto a Part 2 course.’
