Help architecture students

Now, more than ever, we need your support to help architecture students through their education.

The length of architecture courses, along with the need for specialised materials, printing services and essential study trips, make architecture one of the most expensive professions to join. Standard student loans simply do not cover all these costs.

The RIBA Education Fund provides grants to students experiencing financial hardship.

To date, generous gifts from individuals, legacies, companies and charitable trusts have enabled the Education Fund to distribute over £450,000 to those in greatest need of support. However, applications for assistance from the Fund are up 300% in the last five years, and now more than ever we greatly need your support.

You can make a donation knowing that your gift will have an immediate and discernible impact. All money donated goes directly to relieve hardship; the RIBA makes no deductions for administration.

Donate online 

You can also donate by sending a cheque, payable to the RIBA, to the Development Office, RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London W1B 1AD.

To set up a standing order donation, please download this form and return to the Development Office.
