RIBA Part 2 Bursary

The aim of the RIBA Part 2 Bursary scheme is to provide long term financial support to Part 2 architecture students, who demonstrate talent and commitment to their studies and who might struggle to cover the costs of living and course-related expenditure.

Successful applicants studying full time will receive £1,000 per term throughout the course of their Part 2 to a maximum of £6,000. Successful part time applicants will receive the same maximum amount in payments proportionate to the length of their studies.

The 2023 bursaries have been made possible thanks to generous donations by Joanna Lewinski, the Rosenberg Memorial Fund, and Donald and Nancy Notley.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible to apply for the 2023 RIBA Part 2 Bursary applicants must be in the process of applying for a RIBA Part 2 course in the UK beginning in September 2023.

Applicants do not need to have a place confirmed at the time of applying but will need to list their first and second university choices in the application.

Proof of enrolment will be required before the bursary is paid to successful applicants.

Home, EU, and international students are eligible to apply.

Selection criteria

Applications are assessed by members of the RIBA Education Development Group, using the following criteria:

  • evidence of academic performance, commitment to studies, and potential contribution to the profession
  • a demonstration of financial need
  • a clear consideration of future goals and aspirations as an architecture student, and how the applicant hopes to achieve them
