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 for 2018 are now open.

To apply, please complete an application form. Full details of the application process can be found in the form.

The deadline to apply is Midday Friday 22 June 2018. Completed applications should be emailed to
