RIBA Boyd Auger Scholarship
In 2007, Mrs Margot Auger donated a sum of money to the RIBA in memory of her late husband, the architect and civil engineer Boyd Auger, to create a funding scheme that would support and reward architecture students and graduates.
This became the RIBA Boyd Auger Scholarship; a £5,000 scholarship which aims to assist with closely defined research proposals by architecture students and graduates lasting between 6 and 12 months, which involve carefully planned and budgeted periods of international travel. The scholarship can also support graduates in a period of international work experience, but the emphasis should be on the opportunity to travel in the chosen location.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- be enrolled in a RIBA Part 1, 2 or 3 course in the UK or overseas, or
- have been granted a place of study in a RIBA Part 2 course by the beginning of the period covered by the scholarship, or
- have graduated from a RIBA Part 1 or 2 course within the past 5 years
Applications will open again in April 2019.
