​RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentships

About the Studentship

The RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentship is awarded to a student who wishes to pursue, continue, or complete a higher degree in research (PhD/MPhil or MRes).

The applicant should be registered for the degree in a British university and within a department which runs undergraduate courses validated by the RIBA. In this instance, the delivery of research training is more important than the subject to be studied, so the applicant should show why they want to follow this course and what they expect to do with it. Preference will be given to applicants who are RIBA members.

The Studentship is made possible through a generous donation from Hoda Ozolins to the RIBA in 1983. The funds were allocated to create a lecture in the memory of her late husband LKE Ozolins, and to provide several research studentships.

2016 RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentship recipient

The 2016 RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentship was awarded to Judit Ferencz for her PhD research 'The Graphic Novel as an Interdisciplinary Conservation Method in Architectural Heritage' at the University College London. Her thesis aims to develop an entirely new critical methodology for conservation and architectural heritage practices, through the medium of the graphic novel.

The RIBA LKE Ozolins Studentship will not be running in 2018. If you would like to be notified when this fund does reopen, please email
