12 Feb 2016
RIBA makes bursary awards annually to support talented students of architecture who are planning to embark on an RIBA-validated Part 2 course within the UK.
The bursary, worth £6,000 is made to support students experiencing financial hardship who might otherwise not continue with their architectural studies. Bursaries are funded through the legacy bequest of Walter J Parker.
Andy Beard, Chair of the RIBA Education Trust Funds Committee, said: “The judging panel were pleased to receive a large number of excellent applications from students who demonstrated that they would experience severe financial hardship during their Part 2 courses. The selection process was rigorous and challenging, but we are delighted to be able to provide bursaries to five students who we are confident will be very successful on their courses."
RIBA President Jane Duncan said: “This scheme is so important to the diversity of the profession. The costs of studying architecture in the UK are high, and these bursaries will help to mitigate some of this expenditure.”
