​RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship

The RIBA AHR Stephen Williams Scholarship was established in 2008 thanks to the generous support of AHR Architects, and is offered in memory of Stephen Williams, a past Director, and his tireless devotion to the profession, the education of architects, and the importance of good design.

The scholarship provides £6,000 to support one student for a period of postgraduate studies lasting up to 12 months in the UK or abroad. In addition, AHR will ensure that one of their senior architects is available to mentor the recipient throughout the period of their scholarship.

To be eligible to apply, applicants must:

  • have graduated from a Part 1 programme validated by the RIBA in the UK, and
  • at the time of application, be enrolled in, or have been granted a placement offer for, an RIBA-validated Part 2 professional qualification in the UK or abroad, or
  • be enrolled, or have been granted a placement offer, in a Masters course (non-RIBA Part 2) related to architecture, at a university department that also offers courses validated by the RIBA in the UK or abroad.
