Apply for funding
The W J Parker Trust is funded by the bequest of Walter J Parker, who left a legacy to support the apprenticeship and professional training of architects experiencing financial hardship.
The emphasis of the Walter Parker Bursary scheme is to support students to enter the architectural profession. Part of this is supporting students with practical experience, which is a requirement of architectural education: students must demonstrate key professional skills and competencies at the Part 3 professional examination which is the last stage before qualification as an architect.
Students of architecture can gain key experience at all stages of their architectural education. This bursary scheme provides assistance to students and graduates who are entering the architectural profession and who are limited by financial constraints, specifically supporting individuals to take advantage of opportunities for practical experience that will assist on their route to qualification as an architect.
To apply for funding, please complete the RIBA Student Hardship Funds application form and read the Guidance Notes which includes important information about how to complete the application form.
Applications are accepted throughout the year, but funding is limited and grants can be made only for as long as there is funding available, so applicants are advised to apply early.
Please contact Hayley Russell via email or call +44 (0)20 7307 3678 if you have any questions about the application process or to check your eligibility for the bursary.
