The RIBA Education Fund makes grants to students of architecture in the UK experiencing financial hardship.
We believe that anyone dreaming of becoming an architect should have the opportunity to do so. The RIBA Education Fund has been set up to ensure that the study of architecture remains financially accessible to all. The RIBA Education Fund supports students throughout their education, not only encouraging diversity, but also ensuring access to those who would otherwise struggle with the costs.
Architecture courses are longer and usually more expensive than most other courses owing to the need for materials for studio work, printing and study trips. Student loans do not cover this expenditure over the course duration.
The Education Fund awards grants throughout the academic year to assist students in covering general course and living costs. The size of grants varies and is dependent on the applicant's individual circumstances.
By making grants from its Education Fund, the RIBA tries to enable aspiring architects to realise their ambitions to enter the profession. This is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Fund's donors. Find out more about supporting the Education Fund.
